When: Fri., Aug. 26 2016
Since 2001, people from all over the Great Lakes region have come together to remember the 1969 burning of the Cuyahoga River and celebrate the renewed sense of eco-consciousness that the infamous fire ignited. This year, Burning River Fest invites people to celebrate Cleveland’s historic Coast Guard Station with live music, amazing local food and beer. Dance, eat, drink and relish one of Cleveland’s most historic monuments later this summer. The event takes place today and tomorrow from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Coast Guard Station on Whiskey Island. Tickets are $15. (Danielle Immerman) burningriverfest.org.
