happy weekend

Hey there, what a stunning example of a sunny summer day! It’s gonna be a great weekend weather-wise and there is so much happening around town…here are a few ideas for your weekend planning.

Tonight kicks off the annual Weapons of Mass Creation design conference and music festival. Get your weekend pass now to see unique bands, hear area creative speaker..s.don’t miss “Mr. Johnny Cupcakes” himself speak Saturday evening 7-7:45 on the importance of developing a great brand…if you have a t-shirt wear it. On Sunday make sure you go hear words of creative wisdom from my friend and fellow creative Brian Jasinski of Grey Cardigan! As an inpiring designer, you also might want to check out the “Ask the Pro’s” table on Sunday from noon to 2pm…you never know who will be there reviewing work…wink wink!

Another creative city explosion will be this years 23rd Annual Parade the Circle taking place Saturday from 11-4pm in University Circle. This eclectic gathering and celebration of the arts is one not to be missed.

Another fun and quirky happening that you might think is fun is the annual Spirit of Cleveland Airstream rally at Burke Lakefront Airport. Come and check out over 50 historic Airstream trailers parked in the “silver city.” (Friday & Saturday)

Looking to get your 5K run on, this new race looks so great. The Pier W Copper River Salmon 5K Run takes place Saturday (mid)morning and cumulates on the upper desk of Pier W. Really cool thing, your race entry fee covers a full lunch provided by the restaurant. It is going to be a great day for a run and lunch…sign up early as spots are limited

And then don’t forget there is always the beach at the Lake, bike rides through the city, patios galore! So much to do…it’s gonna be a wild creative weekend in Cleveland.
