Dean Martin Fest brings fans from all over

Dean Martin Festival
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio — "We don’t have talent like that anymore. How many people do you see now-a-days who do music, movies, and tv all at once? You don’t. No one can do it quite like Dino,” said long-time attendee, Mike Wiggins.
The festival that rolls around once a year honors the life of a Steubenville legend. It’s an event over 20-years-old that brings Dean Martin fans from all over the country back to his hometown in downtown Steubenville.
"The history of this event started 102 years ago when Dean Martin was born. We just took it and ran with it, and have been doing it 22 years,” said owner of Spot Bar, Jojo Dialbert.
The event, which runs from Thursday to Saturday night has some loyal fans. Including Wiggins who has been traveling from Lansing, Michigan to Steubenville for the event since 2000.
“Sometimes I come by myself, other times a friend comes from Lansing. We just have one thing in common. Dean Martin,” said Wiggins. “We get together every year and just have a ball. And that’s what it is all about, and that’s what makes this festival what it’s all about.”
For Wiggins and so many others, the festival is about honoring a man who made an impact on fans throughout the world,
“Dean Martin was one of America’s beloved entertainers. He was probably the only artist, the very few, who had a hit tv show, a hit record, and hit movie all out at the same time, and he is one of the original Beatle Busters when ‘Everybody Loves Somebody’ went number one and knocked Beatles out of first place,” said Wiggins.
Saturday the events continue with a run, a car cruise, and fun for all ages.
“First of all, it’s only once a year so if you miss it you’ve got to wait a year,” said Dialbert. “It’s a great event, everyone enjoys it, and if you miss it, shame on you.”
