Put-in-Bay Trashes 2021

Put-in-Bay has a long-standing tradition of burning an effigy to help bring on winter ice.  This year, instead of a sacrificial cow or pig, Billy Market opted to put 2021 in its proper place–a trash can–and help the community enact a fresh renewal of things hoped for.

Prior to the burn, Mr. Market explained the new approach, and a prayer of reflection was offered by Rev. Mary Staley of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Put-in-Bay.

A healthy attendance by Put-in-Bay residents and closing fireworks created a true spectacle for all to enjoy.
