Description

Marion, Ohio, also known (or self-proclaimed) as “The World’s Popcorn Capital” hosts the largest popcorn festival in the world, regularly luring crowds of over 250,000. The three-day event, which has made the American Bus Association’s “Top 100 Events in North America” several times, offers music and other live entertainment on several stages, popcorn cooking contests, a colorful parade with hundreds of floats, beer gardens, pageants for various age groups, runs, bike races, golf and softball tournaments, arts and crafts, and, of course, plenty of warm popcorn to crunch on. OK, we feel dizzy now too. Headliners of previous years have included such big-name acts as Gloria Estefan, Kool and the Gang, Huey Lewis and the News, Molly Hatchet, Neal McCoy and The Pointer Sisters.
