ZANESVILLE, Ohio – As a part of the Crooksville- Roseville Pottery Festival the Grounds Opening Celebration kicked off at Crooksville Village Park.
The three day long celebration is free and open to the community. We talked to Rhonda Abele who told us that this event is important to the community of Crooksville because it high lights who and what they stand for.
"This is pottery towns, these towns were built on the pottery business at one time there were 10-12 pottery’s in Roseville and Crooksville Ohio and that’s what people did. They worked, lived and died by pottery. It’s a tradition we’re honoring what they did and how they lived. We’re honoring our heritage with the pottery festival," said Abele.
Abele said their big parade will take place on Saturday at 6 p.m on Main Street and will end at the Crooksville Village Park. She said there are plenty of other events that’ll take place throughout the next three days for the entire family.
"We have lots of stands here, we have lots of things going on. We have trailers craft trailers, a smoke house for kids to go in to learn how to be safe in a fire," said Abele.
Abele said next year the event will be held in Roseville.
