Barberton, Ohio: A Special Anniversary Remembrance!

Real Estate Agent with America's 1st Choice RH Realty Co., Inc.



Barberton, Ohio is celebrating 50 years since the mum had been named the city's official flower.  They included a unique approach to this celebrating by inviting couples to renew their vows who are celebrating their 50th anniversary as well.



Six couples renewed their vows while standing beside a multicolored, chrysanthemum-shaped arch along Lake Anna at the annual Mum Fest.


Renewal of vows and co-celebrating local resident's golden anniversary added something special to this year's "muPicmfest."    50 years is a long time and certainly includes numerous memories for everyone involved.  The city of Barberton has several special events over the course of a hear but this one will be a very special one for those couples who participated in this special anniversary.

Congratulations to the City of Barberton for taking a creative and unique approach to celebrating a very special anniversary for the city and it's residents.
