CLEVELAND - We love our warm months and have learned to appreciate each and every nice day - knowing that the season is short.
And what better way to spend a warm night than with good music under the stars? Cleveland’s open-air concerts are often free and always fabulous. No matter what kind of music gets you going, you’ll likely find a summer concert that’ll make you sing.
The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is the backdrop for several summer concerts. Grab a blanket and a picnic and plan to spend the evening at one of the park’s live music events, which include games, crafts and other family activities.
