We’re just thrilled to be part of the Dean Martin festival. It’s been something that was brought about years ago. We find that it brings a lot of people to Steubenville and even throughout the year people come at Christmastime and they’re traveling and they come into Steubenville and talk about Dean Martin.Jerry Barilla, Mayor of Steubenville
