A parents weekend to remember.

The last weekend in September, always has high people traffic in Athens, as the parents of the young scholars’ flock back to have a fun time with their kids.

It all started on Friday night where the Ohio Bobcats took on Akron in volleyball. The parents were in for a treat as Ohio opened up their Mid-American Conference play with a three game sweep against the Zips.

Saturdays might be for the boys, but this weekend they were for parents. It started after a long night out on the bricks at 2 o’clock. Ohio took host Gardner-Webb. The Bobcats sent the parents on their way with a great performance.

my parents are in Florida so my sister and I rented our family friends from Columbus parents for Saturday

After the game, or after the Marching 110 at halftime… the parents and their families made the trek up to Court Street for some happy hour drinks at the local bars.

not all kids had their parents come down so some had to share like Max O’Bryan did with Kristen Rossi’s (not pictured) mother

After a couple of cheap drinks and some great food to fill up the empty stomachs, the families made their way to the Athena Cimena for a great comedy show in “The Monty Python.”

 

Hopefully next years’ parents weekend can be as great as this past weekend. Have a wonderful week
