The annual Founders Day Celebration at Put-in-Bay will be held in the center of the village at DeRivera Park from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. This free, family-focused island event, is hosted by the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce, and celebrates the founding of Put-in-Bay by Hispanic merchant Jose DeRivera. Founders Day will feature live entertainment, playing popular tunes in a fair-type atmosphere. Children’s games will be available from noon to 2:00 pm. Put-in-Bay’s EMTs bring the miniature Life Flight helicopter for the kids to ride, and hand out safety information. There will also be local crafters and jewlery makers selling their wares. Pick up a vintage Put-in-Bay souvenir, handcrafted items, tee-shirts, jewelry and more.
