Wellington’s Fourth of July celebration began Sunday night with an ice cream social and concert from the Patriots Symphonic band followed by fireworks at the Lorain County Fairgrounds. It continued Monday with a beer garden, music, a dunk tank, face-painting, and an obstacle course. The highlight was a parade with floats, veterans, classic cars, and Dukes sports teams.
