Returning for the eighth year, Lakewood Summer Meltdown
takes place today on Detroit Avenue between Marlowe and Elmwood.
The street festival features all sorts of outdoor games and activities, including a 5-K race and a 1-Mile Kids Fun Race for the little ones. (You can register for the races on the website.) Activities range from a sprinkler park to yoga demonstrations and a skateboard park.
The local band Front Porch Lights will perform, food trucks will be on hand and (yes!) there is a beer garden.
The fest takes place from 4 to 10 p.m. Admission is free. (Daniela Cacho)
