TOLEDO, Ohio — This morning, the 2021 Jeep Fest parade kicked off in the streets of downtown Toledo, providing quite the spectacle for those who lined the parade route.

Plenty of vendors were present for today’s event, many of whom have been downtown since 4 a.m. to set up their displays. Imagination Station offered plenty of activities for young jeepers and performances will be taking place into the night.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley joined Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz for today’s parade, as well as many other proud Jeep owners.

There was plenty of pent up energy, as the event didn’t take place in 2020 due to the pandemic, although the 2019 event brought 70,000 people to downtown Toledo.

Plenty of the Jeeps in today’s parade were decked out with flags and stickers, while others were vintage Jeeps no longer in production.

There were also activities in the SeaGate Centre, including remote-controlled Jeeps that you could drive on a downsized obstacle course.
