Wapakoneta is gearing up to celebrate a hometown hero.

The Summer Moon Festival is back for its 49th year. Activities will be taking place in downtown Wapak as well as the Armstrong Museum. Along with all the out-of-this-world festival favorites, this year they will be adding the Lunar Launch to the roster. The Lunar Launch is a 300 ft zip line that will run down Auglaize St. The three-day celebration gives the community a chance to celebrate the accomplishments of Wapak-born Neil Armstrong.

"It's just a time to come together and celebrate our hometown hero of Neil Armstrong," says Melissa Carlin, Exec. Director of the Wapakoneta Area Chamber of Commerce. "He put Wapakoneta on the map. We have the unique name but it's kind of a nice stamp of what Wapakoneta is."

The festival officially begins July 18, 2018, with the Miss Summer Moon Pageant.
