When: Sat., May 16 2015
Conceived in 1969 as a block party (and later abandoned amid the not-so-hip 1980s), the Hessler Street Fair that takes place in Harmony Park has evolved into one of the biggest and most involved parties of its kind. It's a free event that sort of opens the floodgates for summertime neighborhood fun in Cleveland. There's plenty to go around — pass it to your left, as they say, or is that something else? — and it all begins at Hessler. Musical acts slated to perform include I-Tal, JiMiller Band, Revolution Brass Band and Cats on Holiday. It goes from 11 a.m. to dusk today and tomorrow. (Sandy) hesslerstreetfair.org.
