WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Businesses in Wauseon are preparing for a busy weekend as their Homecoming Festival kicks off.

Hundreds of people are expected to make their way to the festival that began Thursday night. The event will feature music, food, rides and lots of entertainment.

The festival is on Fulton Street in downtown Wauseon, right where a lot of new businesses have recently opened. Those who work there say they're hoping to make a good impression so customers come back.

"Hopefully it does draw people to Wauseon, and support all of the local businesses we have down here," said Sara Gillen, a sales associate at Passion 4 Fashion Boutique.

The festival runs until Saturday evening.
