Hallelujah! What a pleasure to welcome back the Oil Heritage Festival. It's one more sign that things are getting back to something like normal.
The history of oil in the region is an excellent excuse to celebrate the region. I mean, there is such a thing as a mac and cheese festival (in both Scranton and Pittsburgh), a rhubarb festival (Lancaster County), a paper airplane championship (Little Rock, Arkansas), and a waffles and beer festival (Los Angeles). I'm pretty sure that the birth of an industry that changed the entire world deserves a festival of its own.
