When: Sat., July 26 2014
This afternoon and evening, Councilman Zack Reed presents the 11th Annual “Family Unity in the Park” concert and fireworks at Luke Easter Park (the largest urban park in the state of Ohio). Reed was delighted this year to lure the Rock Hall inductees The O’Jays as the headliners. Reed says he’s expecting anywhere from 20,000 to 25,000 attendees and that this annual party is easily one of his residents’ favorite events. More than just food and entertainment, there’s practical value as well: the Mount Pleasant Community Zone is hosting mobile clinics for free health screenings for blood pressure, diabetes and more. Hell, there’s even voter registration booths. Live music begins at noon and the party won’t stop until 9:30 p.m. (Allard) thefamilyunityinthepark.com.
