Memorial Day Weekend in Northeast Ohio

Written by

There is so much going on in the Land this long weekend. Jaci mentioned a lot of them in Exploring the Land yesterday, but here's a few more... as well as Memorial Day Parade info! 

As a kid, I absolutely loved visiting downtown Chagrin Falls for their annual Blossomtime Festival. I definitely got sick riding one too many spinny rides, but if you pace yourself, you can enjoy a full weekend of live music, parading, rides, carnival games, a pie-eating contest, and so much more! It’s free to enter, and you can also explore the local businesses downtown and of course the waterfall. Make it out there before it ends on Monday.

If you like Little Italy, you’re gonna LOVE Little Italy’s Artisan & Farmers Market. Local vendors, artists, and farmers will be set up Saturday at Tony Brush Park from 1 to 7 p.m. It’s a great way to enjoy a Saturday while supporting local businesses. Check out more info here
