Seasonal Special Happenings

Something Splendorous

When: Sat., July 25 2015

Can you believe it’s been five years since we lost legendary writer Harvey Pekar? He may be gone, but he’s certainly not forgotten — especially in his hometown. To celebrate the life and work of Pekar, the Coventry Outdoor Courtyard (at the northwest corner of Coventry Rd. and Euclid Heights Blvd.) will be renamed Pekar Park. A special dedication ceremony will take place during an all-day festival in his honor from noon to 6 p.m. today. The ceremony takes place at 12:30 p.m. Jazz performances will follow from 1 to 3 p.m, with storytelling from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event culminates with a 9 p.m. outdoor screening of Pekar’s biopic, American Splendor in Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Park (Note: Rain date would be Sunday, July 26). Free. (Usmani)
