MAKE ‘M SMILE – OHIO


Make ‘m Smile Drive-Thru

Due to the Coronavirus, we’ve had to change our Make ‘m Smile festival at Hartville Memorial Park. However, we found a GREAT alternative so we can still have the event! On July 11, we will host VIP families for our first ever Make ‘m Smile Drive-Thru!

We will bring joy and smiles to VIPs while taking every precaution for safe distancing along with following as many guidelines as possible.

Smiles will ABOUND as our VIPs ride through a route across from Hartville Memorial Park at the Lake Elementary School parking lot – 205 Lincoln St., Hartville, OH 44632. Everyone will be kept safe inside their vehicles during this concerning time. There will be stops along the route as they are greeted by awesome Resource Exhibitors, Vendors, and Smile Makers who will give out FREE items including food and much more!!!
