Every July, my wife and sons travel from Columbus to Lima for the Star Spangled Spectacular. It’s a great show with the symphony and fireworks. We’re in town for at least a day, picking up Kewpees, Happy Daz or a bucket of Lee’s.
Something missing the past few years has been the “living statue” from Mark Abbati. Whether he’s dressed as GI Joe or Uncle Sam, the kids love seeing him work the crowd. We miss this fun addition to the day, and we hope to see him brought back in 2020.
