The National Night Out Against Crime will once again be celebrated in this ward by holding and Ice Crime Social in Jefferson Park with free hotdogs, ice cream, and popcorn during an outdoor showing of Paddington on Tuesday, August 4th.
The Friends of Jefferson Park are organizing Rock Around the Park Classic Car & Music Show on Saturday, August 8th in their park at 13200 Lorain Ave. At the Classic Car Show, there will be a free performance of A Blast From the Past by the Cuyahoga National Park. This event is sponsored by Brian Kazy. Read more here about the Rock Around the Park and the Jumpin’ at Jefferson basketball extravaganza that precedes it that day.
The councilman is also sponsoring a free outdoor performance of Lost in the Water outside at Robinson G. Jones for the entire community’s enjoyment on Thursday, August 13th at 7pm. The play will be performed by youth who helped create the play through Cleveland Public Theatre’s (CPT) Student Theatre Enrichment Program (STEP).
Lost in the Water is presented as part of CPT’s Performing Water series in connection with the City of Cleveland’s Year of Clean Water. Who dares to venture out to the haunted lighthouse? What unfortunate souls drift with the water-logged wreck? And who might find jewels of wisdom there? Inspired by the Inuit folktale The Skeleton Woman, Shakespeare’s The Tempest, the Susanoo-no-Mikoto story of Japan, and the South African myth, Selekena and the River Goddess, this family-friendly voyage is a powerful collection of tales that explore our deep connection to water, one of our most precious and powerful resources. Come celebrate the creativity of Cleveland’s youth! Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy free theatre in the park! The teachers and staff of Robinson G. Jones invite you to stay for an ice cream social afterwards.
*Because of rain, the McGowan Park outdoor movie showing has been rescheduled to September 11th.
