        BLUE ASH — The police and fire departments plan open houses Saturday in conjunction with the city's Heritage Day celebration.

        The celebration will take visitors back to Blue Ash in the 1800s and feature the sounds of dulcimers and flutes, storytellers, and craft-makers teaching their skills and selling their creations.

        Entertainment includes appearances by the Wild Cactus Cloggers, Rabbit Hash (Bluegrass) Band, storyteller Jamon Zeiler, ethnic dancing, Dr. Smart's Medicine Show and James ""Sparky” Rucker.

        Demonstrations throughout the day include weaving, sewing, candle-making and ice cream-making.

        The day will conclude with a campfire and marshmallow roast 6-8 p.m.

        The annual event will be noon to 8 p.m. at the Blue Ash Nature Park behind the fire station at the city's main administrative complex, 4343 Cooper Road, just east of Reed Hartman Highway.
