    Go Bananas — (2nd Full Weekend In June)

    Pull on your poodle skirt, roll down your bobby socks and get ready to rock 'n' roll at the Banana Split Festival in Wilmington. Enjoy this tribute to the Elvis era, complete with vintage cruise-in, games, crafts and collectibles, and great food. Attend free concerts by well-known entertainers. After the concert on Friday evening, check into your deluxe accommodations and rest up for the next fun-filled day. Enjoy breakfast before heading out to the Kings Island Amusement Park. After a day of riding the rides, watching the musical and theatrical shows, or jumping the waves at the Kings Island wave pool, head back to Wilmington to resume your rock 'n' roll adventure at the Banana Split Festival. Before getting situated for the Saturday evening concert, be sure and get the best banana split around, and then travel back in time while listening to the music of yesteryear. Your evening accommodations will be waiting for you at the end of the day. Sleep in or rise early for a continental breakfast before heading out for Cowan Lake State Park, an ideal place for a little relaxation. Your group can take a pontoon tour on the lake and watch the sailboats, take in a little fishing, go on a hike and enjoy the natural resources of this beautiful park, swim at the beach, and have a summer picnic before heading home. It's a restful end to a perfect weekend.
