Blue Tip Festival - 50th Anniversary

50 years of Wadsworth, Ohio Blue Tip footage was sourced and gathered, thanks to the archives of WCTV - Wadsworth Community Television, to create and celebrate this historical parade featuring the world largest matchstick.

The Blue Tip Festival is a five-day celebration of the Wadsworth community. It starts with a parade and the lighting of a 20-foot-high blue-tip match, which lights downtown Wadsworth during the festival's duration.

The festival is named after the historic strike-anywhere blue tip matches which were once manufactured in Wadsworth. While match manufacturing left Wadsworth in the 1980s, the Blue Tip Festival uses the name and giant match to affirm the community's past and celebrate the modern American city. The festival is now run by a non-profit organization, staffed entirely by volunteers, referred to as the Blue Tip Festival Committee. Revenues from the festival are donated to Wadsworth area non-profit groups

I believe in people over profit and that access to quality video content should be available to all, without creative hassles and in an affordable way. I liken being a videographer and video editor to putting together a very special puzzleโ€“fitting together the pieces or โ€œlittle momentsโ€ to convey a bigger message about a person or business, and inviting the viewer to enjoy it in a very SHE way. I work to create videos where each has its own vibe and gives sense of your organization and culture.
