Great Lakes Brewing Company holds its annual Burning River Fest on Saturday, 4-11 p.m. at the Historic Coast Guard Station, located at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River on Whiskey Island. Raise a pint to the "watershed moment" that raised a new level of eco-consciousness, the 1969 burning of the Cuyahoga River. This recognition of the 40th "rebirth-day" will feature live music from 10 bands, including Blessid Union of Souls, Alberta Cross, Zach, Kristine Jackson and more. Food from local and organic farms and eateries will be available and Great Lakes Brewing beer. Tickets are available for pre-sale ($15) at the web site or $20 at the gate.
