The all-ages, daylong festival rocks to the rhythms of more than 50 northwestern-Ohio bands, solo artists, and DJs spanning three stages. Every genre of popular tunes gets its showcase, from hip-hop to law rock to swing metal. Hobo Stew, an indie pop-punk band from Liberty Center, powers through three-chord head-nodders like “This Will Bite You.” For a heavier sound, check out Archibold metalheads Dethrats, who keep things black with propulsive kickdrums, growling vocals, and sacrificial muppets on “End of Days.” Toledo hip-hop artist Raine Wilder carries the torch of Ohio rap with “I Came for You” and other bursts of percussive rhyme. Headliners can lubricate cheering tubes with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages or fuel crowd-surfing muscles with hamburgers, hot dogs, and other BBQ fare.

The permanent orchestra consists of approximately 80 professional musicians, though extra musicians are regularly enlisted to garnish the sound and retrieve coffee during extremely long rests with bolded fermatas.

More than a few local legends swirl around Dublin cheesemonger Pat Hyland, better known as Paddy Jack. One tale has him traveling more than more than 1,000 miles to retrieve a cow that had been carried off by a tornado?no mean feat when one considers the rarity of tornadoes in Ireland and the fact that the island's only 250 miles from Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay. Another tells of him hiding the recipes to his finest cheeses in a cave beneath Dublin, possibly just below the Temple Bar market where he sold them for 10 years.

Paddy Jack's strives to match Hyland's passion for quality, exemplified by his phrase: ?People can taste the effort you put in.? That effort can be tasted in the establishment's more than 20 stuffed grilled-cheese sandwiches. The Memphis Mac is the chef's favorite, lined as it is with pulled pork and topped with mac and cheese. But the Loco Jack makes it a contest with its splash of special sauce and hidden depths of crushed Doritos. Running throughout all the sandwiches, however, are cheeses that could stand with the best produced by Hyland on Co Laois, his farm in Cuffsboro.

While lots of barbecue places offer chicken, the staff at Jed’s offer a slightly different experience than your classic drumsticks and legs. Instead, they’ve created a menu revolving around their signature Fireballs, which are boneless, skinless chicken tenders molded into balls and drizzled in sauces and toppings of choice. The menu features 10 distinctive sauces, creating gooey American eats such as Carolina balls topped with pulled pork, coleslaw, and cheese, or Cajun balls layered with provolone cheese and Cajun spices. The rest of the menu continues to utilize these sauces and toppings, with chefs using them to add flavor to coney dogs or create juicy burgers and barbecue sandwiches.

The smallest Jed's BBQ and Brew around, on Holland Sylvania, has an large, but intimate patio, and treats guests to feasts of hearty, homecooked pub food and neighborly camaraderie in a family-friendly atmosphere. Patrons watch sports over frosty beverages, or celebrate the bar and grill's fifth anniversary with burgers and beers on the patio.

Flyboard Rentals of Toledo weds waterskiing and flight with their gravity-defying flyboards. Certified flyboard instructors are on hand to teach students how to safely soar above the water at the whims of water-pressure-guided boots. It only takes about 5?10 minutes to learn how it works?just strap yourself into a pair of boots that are anchored by a small board, and grab hold of the 50-foot cord attached to a jet ski. When the instructor powers up the jet ski, water blasts out from under the board and you're sent straight up into the air to hover on the water. Jim Stillman, the owner and operator of Flyboard Rentals, has personally trained each instructor and ensured that all are certified in first aid and CPR.
