Tillsonburg Turtlefest
This annual summer street festival draws its inspiration from a legendary promise by Tillsonburg's founder, George Tillson, to return one day as a turtle to see how his town was fairing.

A few years after he died, a giant turtle was found near the Tillson homestead. Remembering Tillson's promise, citizens brought the turtle to the downtown area and invited everyone to visit and tell "George" how the town was prospering.
