Festivals in Cleveland

If the handpainted snake on my neighbor kid’s arm is any indication, the Clifton Art and Musicfest did turn out to be a family-friendly event after all.   We didn’t make it out there, but our neighbors seemed to have had a good time.

There are a ton of festivals in and around Cleveland, Ohio throughout the year, with a majority concentrated between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, pretty much what we call the summer months here.  This coming weekend is a busy one, with the Cleveland Wine Festival, Boston Mills ArtFest, Ohio Scottish Games, German-American Cultural Festival and  Lorain International Festival.

A great free event to take the kids the following weekend, on July 5th, will be the Cleveland Dragon Boat Festival down in the Flats along the Cuyahoga River.   I know our son would love to see the boats, unfortunately, I am in a wedding that day and won’t be able to make it there.   The festival promotes Cleveland’s Asian community, and the boats look like they’d be a lot of fun to watch floating down the river.

If you attend any of these, please leave a comment sharing your experiences.

Until next time,
