Despite traffic snafu, Algonquin Mill Festival attracts large crowds

Amanda Cintula, of near Akron, removed bread from the bread oven at the Alqonquin Mill Festival Friday. Her fiance’s stepfather is a festival volunteer and Carroll County Historical Society member. Cintula became a member this year.

The 47th annual Algonquin Mill Festival could be one for the record books.

The weather was wonderful all three days with rain holding off until after 4:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The crowd was on par with attendance at the last three for four festivals.

Carroll County Historical Society President Dave McMahon felt the threat of rain and wind Sunday is what drew a large crowd Saturday. McMahon noted over the years, Sunday was the day for the big crowd, but lately it has changed to Saturday drawing the big crowd.

“This year we had the perfect storm,” McMahon stated. “We had beautiful weather Saturday and the public listened to the weather forecast predicting rain and storms Sunday.”

McMahon said the society did a great job of advertising and promoting the festival, which helped with the large turnout of people. However, the large turnout did cause issues with parking. People were stuck in traffic for up to 90 minutes at times. One of the issues involved non-society related parking and pedestrians having to cross the busy road, holding up traffic.

“I want to thank everyone who had patience and survived the hour plus wait in traffic,” McMahon said. “I commend you for your dedication.”

Despite weather reports, Sunday’s turnout was, in McMahon’s opinion, “Like the best Friday we’ve had.” McMahon said a lot of food was sold out by the time the rain hit Sunday, with less than 10 chicken dinners available.

Aviators soar to a 38-7 win over Warriors

Brady Brenner (18) blocks for teammate Teagin Mohn (8) during Friday’s game against Alliance. Mohn was also a defensive leader for the Warriors with eight tackles, seven of them solo, and two tackles for losses.

CARROLLTON – The Warrior football team wasn’t successful on the scoreboard Friday against Alliance.

They were successful in keeping Duce Johnson, a senior running back, from breaking out. Johnson averages 238 yards per game. Carrollton kept him at 208 yards.

“We played hard,” Coach Phil Mauro said. “They did a good job against an exceptional running back.”

Carrollton received the ball to start the game. Quarterback Parker Crim hooked up with running back Chase Flanagan in an attempt to get down field. Unable to get to another first down, the Warriors punted the ball and the Aviators took possession on the 39-yard line. On a first-and-goal, Aviator quarterback Howard Frazier ran for 7-yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good giving the Aviators an early 7-0 lead with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

Alliance kicked off to the Warriors and, after an Aviator penalty for illegal procedure, the ball was on the 35-yard line. The first play from scrimmage was an interception by Alliance, but did not result in any points.
