Sunny skies added to the spirit of celebration at community events Saturday in Mantua, Suffield and Garrettsville as well as the Carson & Barnes Circus at Sunbeau Valley Farm on S.R. in Ravenna Township.

The Mantua Restoration Society hosted a centennial celebration for Mantua Center School, which was built in 1914. The school is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The 13th annual Suffield League Music Festival concluded at Wingfoot Lake State Park, where several bands performed and other activities included a car show.

In Garrettsville, the annual Peace Social Car Cruise took place behind the Garrettsville-Freedom-Nelson Fire Department. More than 200 vehicles were expected for the car show, and plenty of peach pie and ice cream was on hand, too.

The Carson & Barnes Circus concluded its two-day run at Sunbeau Valley Farm after opening day festivities Friday that included a bath for the elephants.
