The small Cleveland suburb of Macedonia held a ‘Wizard of Oz Fest’ in the town park. Being in the area we decided to stop by.
Generally the festival was a bust, with just a few vendors peddling Wizard of Oz related trinkets. There were however some people from the local community theater dressed as characters from the movie.
The people from the theater embraced their parts, doing a good job of staying in character.
In addition there were a couple of other people who came dressed for the occasion, but very few. Perhaps we timed it wrong as earlier in the day they had a ‘Dorothy 5k’, but I am unsure if many came in costume.
One of the Wicked Witches guards was on hand.
One guy put on a one person show where he did the entire movie in 20 minutes, changing his hats/hair/etc and doing a brief piece from the movie.
The community theater Dorothy.
The twenty minute Oz wishes everyone a good day. While not the best festival we have ever been to, those in character earn points for effort.
