Cleveland’s “emerald necklace,” The Cleveland Metroparks, celebrates its 100th birthday this week.
The public is invited to enjoy a day of events Saturday to mark the occasion beginning at 2pm at Edgewater Park. There will be food available throughout the day, as well as music. Bands scheduled to perform include Forecast, Oldboy, Billy Morris and Sunset Strip and Michael Stanley and Friends.
Then, at dusk (approximately 9:40 pm), a choreographed, 20-minute fireworks show takes place.
