Jimmy Buffett's "Coral Re**er Band" alumni Amy Lee will be joining "Changes In Latitudes" on saxophone this weekend at Lock 3 Akron, Ohio and National Hamburger Festival
Is there going to be a festival this summer?
You would think that someone would take this over since Akron Ohio does not want the festival maybe the city of Green Ohio where Menches Brothers Restaurant, Green is located.
So, will there be a festival this year?
Will there be a 2019 national hamburger festival ?
What's with the silence? I fear the worst since we have not heard any announcements and it is almost June.
Will this be happening this year?
Is there going to be a festival this year 2018? I heard that it was cancelled.
is it on or not?
