The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame isn’t in Cleveland, Ohio for no reason!!  With summer hot on our heels, the music scene in Cleveland is heating up.    I just wanted to take this month to blog about all the great FREE music concerts and festivals that are going on in some of our communities.

I first wanted to blog about one of my favorite FREE music concert series….WOW! Wade Oval Wednesdays….love this!!!

You can bring your family, friends or that special someone.  Bring a blanket and your picnic basket, or a lawn chair and grab a bite to eat from some amazing eateries representing a taste of what Cleveland has to offer!  There are bounce houses for the kids, or bring a frisbee or a soccer ball and enjoy!!  You can even stay after the concert and enjoy a free movie!

FREE Weekend ………to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame and Science Center @ Carly’z Corner

Photo: We’re celebrating our 100th birthday in 2014 by giving monthly gifts to the Greater #Cleveland community. Enjoy FREE admission to two great attractions: Great Lakes Science Center on Saturday, Feb. 22, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum on Sunday, Feb. 23. Details: http://ow.ly/tdS4t

The Cleveland Foundation is the world’s first community foundation. It is celebrating its 100th year in service to the Cleveland community.   It was created on January 2, 1914 by banker and lawyer Frederick H. Goff.  Who was a “mover and shaker” in Cleveland long before that phrase became part of the American lexicon.   His vision was to pool the charitable resources of Cleveland’s philanthropists, living and dead, into a single, great, and permanent endowment for the betterment of the city. Community leaders would then forever distribute the interest that the trust’s resources would accrue to fund “such charitable purposes as will best make for the mental, moral, and physical improvement of the inhabitants of Cleveland,” says the foundation’s website.

They are providing two ‘Cleveland Foundation Days’ in February because they want to showcase North Coast Harbor and make these Cleveland landmarks accessible to the entire community, reported Robert E. Eckardt, executive vice president of the Cleveland Foundation. The Cleveland Foundation is proud of the role the organization and the donors have played in developing North Coast Harbor into the destination it is today.  They hope Greater Clevelanders spend the weekend on the North Coast celebrating what their generosity has created for the world to enjoy.

The Cleveland Foundation today announced the second in a series of monthly “Cleveland Foundation Day” centennial gifts to the community.  The foundation is creating a “North Coast Harbor Weekend” by inviting the community to visit Great Lakes Science Center on Saturday, Feb. 22 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum on Sunday, Feb. 23, for free.

This is the first time the Rock Hall will host a free weekend day and it is also the first time Great Lakes Science Center has opened its weekend doors for both free admission and OMNIMAX films in its 18-year history.

The Science Center will be open for free admission from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 22. Free OMNIMAX films will be shown all day;  seating will be available for the first 1,800 people. The Rock Hall will have free admission from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 23.  Details on special family programming for the free weekend will be released on Feb. 17.

Visitors are encouraged to take the Greater Cleveland RTA, which has a stop at the Science Center and Rock Hall on its Waterfront line. Details on various parking options are available at www.greatscience.com and www.rockhall.com.

You know how we love free right! Well let me put it to you this way, for my family the cost for admission into the Science Center and Omnimax Theater would cost me $53 plus tax!  But on February 22, we can attend for FRREEEE!

So come out and enjoy! Two Great Cleveland Landmarks for frrrreeeee!!!

Happy Frreeee  Hunting!
