Now in its seventh year, the Hooley, an annual event that takes place at Kamm’s Corners in West Park, rivals St. Patrick’s Day. The name is Irish slang for party and the event lives up to the billing. From noon until 8 p.m., Kamm’s Corners will be closed to traffic from West 165th Street to Rocky River Drive so vendors can set up a variety of food and entertainment booths. Plus, a slew of local bands including the Pipes and Drums of the Cleveland Police, the Sunrise Jones, the Whiskey Island Ramblers, Mary's Lane and JP and the Chatfield Boys are slated to perform. The Cleveland Bazaar, a juried handmade arts and crafts show returns this year after making its debut last year. You can bet the Guinness will be flowing at the terrific collection of bars and pubs on the street. A good time for all ages. Admission is free. (Niesel) kammscorners.com/thehooley.
