There’s less than three weeks before school starts for the year.
Here’s some activities happening in Perrysburg this weekend so you can make the most of what’s left of summer vacation.
The Perrysburg Heights Community Association is kicking off its annual South of the Border Festival.
The festival, now in its 18th year, runs from 4:30 p.m. to midnight on Friday and 2 p.m. to midnight Saturday at Perrysburg Heights Community Park at 12282 Jefferson St., in Perrysburg.
Proceeds go to the Perrysburg Heights Community Center, a nonprofit that runs free sports, educational, and social events.
Activities at the festival include a dunk tank, carnival games and inflatables, a jalapeno-eating contest at 4 p.m. Saturday, and plenty of live music.
Festival event coordinator Anita Sanchez-Serda called it a time for “a lot of picnic, fellowship.”
“That’s almost like an added component to the already round the clock music that will be playing,” Ms. Sanchez-Serda said. “A lot of it is geared toward the whole family.”
Admission is $10 for adults and $3 for kids ages 6-12 and children under 6 are free. Parking is free around the neighborhood while parking at the park costs $5.

A fund-raiser is talking place 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at the Grace United Methodist Church to support a Perrysburg couple’s mission work in Haiti. This is their seventh year holding the event.
Dr. Jay Nielsen and his wife, Jan Meier-Nielsen, will sell bracelets, crosses, and crafts made by Haitian woman.
They started a free public school and a medical facility in Haiti and hope to build a farm resource center.
The church is at 601 East Boundary St. in Perrysburg.
