Event - Lakewood Summer Meltdown

Get ready to add some sizzle to your summer! Lakewood Summer Meltdown 2017, sponsored by Melt Bar & Grilled and presented by LakewoodAlive, is back for its eighth year on Saturday, July 8 from 4-10 p.m. The Summer Meltdown represents one of the region’s most highly-anticipated street parties and drew nearly 10,000 attendees from across Northeast Ohio to the heart of Lakewood last year. This fixture on our city’s summer calendar takes place on Detroit Avenue in Downtown Lakewood between Marlowe and Elmwood. A “something for everyone” event, the Summer Meltdown offers seemingly endless recreation and celebration opportunities, including a 5K race, 1 Mile Kids Fun Run, street festival, outdoor activities, games, food vendors, beer garden, live music and more. Families will love the street festival component, which features free programs from 70+ businesses and nonprofits organizations, including numerous interactive opportunities. Activities range from a sprinkler park to skateboarding to demonstrations of yoga and other exercises. The ever-popular Meltdown 5K draws hundreds of participants annually, as it features a fast course, chip timing, a fashionable t-shirt for participants and prizes for top finishers. Both this running event and the 1 Mile Kids Fun Run afford participants a rare opportunity to partake in an evening race. Local brews available in the Beer Garden presented by First Federal Lakewood will complement dining options from vendors and food trucks. Live music will delight the crowd as dusk turns to nightfall in beautiful Downtown Lakewood.
