This Saturday in the Cleveland Plain Dealer we look at inexpensive ways to celebrate New Years Eve. We take a sleigh ride..or a carriage ride if the weather is too warm and there is no snow, across the palatial estate of former U. S. President Rutherford B. Hayes in Fremont. Then its off to the Merry-go-round Museum in Sandusky for rock bottom prices for an evening of food, drink and free rides on the carousel. We wrap up the night with a visit to the; tiny community of Elmore in Ottawa County where sausage is king and they observe New Year’s Eve by sausage-tossing games. and finally on to Port Clinton where the countdown to midnight is celebrated by lowering a huge fiberglass Walleye fish. Best of all admission to some of these events is free and for others the price is very low. You can read my column in the PD by signing on to www.cleveland.com and typing in my name.
