A day of food and fun

On Saturday, for the fourth year in a row, downtown Ironton will offer a wealth of food options.

A Taste of Ironton is returning to the Farmers market, running from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Organized by Ironton aLive, the event will allow attendees who purchase a $10 booklet to obtain 10 samplings from a range of local restaurants and food servers. A free drink is included.

The region has a wide variety of dining options, and this event will allow the public a one-stop option to try many they have yet to frequent.

In addition to promoting these restaurants, the event will also draw much-needed crowds downtown and to the market for a family-friendly event.

Events like this help to showcase local businesses and show the positive side of our region.

We are thankful Ironton aLive has put this one together for another year.

We encourage everyone to go downtown this weekend and see what our region has to offer.
