OTTOVILLE — The skies may have been clear but water poured down in Ottoville Saturday afternoon during the Waterball Contest, part of the 139th annual Northwest Ohio Volunteer Fireman’s Convention.


Ottoville Fire Department welcomed hundreds of brethren to the village this weekend to celebrate the annual event.


Spectators lined the street to enjoy the contest and see who would win the tug-of-war game.

Along with the Waterball Contest on Friday’s activities also included the Firemen’s Games, where the platoons were challenged with feats of strength and endurance, and the NOVFA Queen’s Pageant.

Today’s events include the annual NOVFA members’ meeting at 9 a.m. and at noon, the Ottoville VFW will host a Past President’s Luncheon.

The convention is capped by a parade at 1:30 p.m. with a trophy presentation and raffle drawing to follow. The drawing and presentation will be held at the convention’s headquarters — the Ottoville Fire Department.
