CLEVELAND, Ohio - Kristian Campana came back from a trip to Ireland and was inspired to explore Ohio. "It was 2009, mid-June. I had just come back from Ireland, and had explored a lot of small towns there. It made me think how Ohio has so many small towns, so much to see. And festivals offered an opportunity to explore." So Oberlin resident Campana, 44, hit the road. Since then, he's visited nearly 500 festivals throughout the state, as well as nearby treks to Kentucky, West Virginia and Michigan. He reviews them all at his website, https://ohiofestivals.net/ Call him the Festival King. "Festivals are open doors to go somewhere new," says Campana, who by day works in the IT field, as well as doing Italian-English translations. "They give you an idea of what different cultures and towns are like." Campana is open-minded when he comes to choosing festivals. He visits small-town fests, food fests, art fests, ethnic fests and a whole lot of quirky fests. He doesn't generally visit musical … [Read more...] about Ohio’s Festival King on this weekend’s best fests, the best in the state and hitting the 500 mark

Updated 7:31 am, Monday, June 18, 2018 America hasn't stopped shopping, but it does shop differently than it used to. As online retail has gotten more popular, it's taking a bite out of sales at brick-and-mortar stores. Many traditional retailers have risen to the challenge with their own online presence, but what happens all those old mall locations? Usually, companies respond by shutting down stores or shrinking their square footage. And while this can be good for stores — focusing their cash on online operations or more successful retail locations — it's not always good for shoppers. Losing a big department store doesn't just mean one less local shopping option; a store closure can lead to a retail chain reaction. A large anchor store leaving a mall means there's less foot traffic for other stores, potentially leading to more closures... and eventually an empty mall. This year Kmart, Macy's, and Sears are all shuttering dozens of locations nationwide. While … [Read more...] about Is Your Local Macy’s, Sears, or Kmart Closing?
