The Who once wrote a song about a "pinball wizard" who "plays a mean pinball." That concept will be celebrated from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 18, when an outdoor pinball party is slated to take place on Coventry Road along the sidewalks throughout the Coventry Village Special Improvement District. Each game will be staffed with pinball experts from the Cleveland Pinball League, so if you’re an amateur player, you can pick up some tips on how to improve your game. Additionally, the B-Side Liquor Lounge & Arcade will be open to all ages and all their classic arcade games will be free to play.
From 1 to 3 p.m., School of Rock Cleveland [pictured] will present “Rock Apocalypse,” a set of classic and contemporary rock and pop tunes. They’ll play in the Coventry Outdoor Courtyard, located at the corner of Coventry Road and Euclid Heights Boulevard. Jason Haley, the Rock Hall’s director of education and author of We Rock! Music Lab for Kids
, will be in the Mac's Backs-Books On Coventry tent (located in the Coventry Outdoor Courtyard) to sign books and give a short talk between School of Rock sets. All events are free.
