The biggest block party in the neighborhood is poised to heat up Lakewood this summer once again! Lakewood Summer Meltdown 2018, sponsored by Melt Bar and Grilled

and presented by LakewoodAlive, returns to Downtown Lakewood for its ninth year on Saturday, July 14 from 4 to 10 p.m.

The Summer Meltdown represents one of the region’s most highly-anticipated street parties. A summertime celebration of our city’s vibrancy, this free community event draws nearly 10,000 attendees from across Northeast Ohio to the heart of Lakewood each July.

This fixture on our city’s summer calendar takes place on Detroit Avenue in Downtown Lakewood between Marlowe and Mars. The Summer Meltdown is a “something for everyone” event, offering 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.

Summer Meltdown 2018 Schedule of Events:
4-7:30 p.m. – Meltdown Street Festival
4 p.m. – Race-day registration begins at the intersection of Detroit and Belle avenues
5-10 p.m. – Gary K. Bish Memorial Beer Garden presented by First Federal Lakewood
6 p.m. – 1 Mile Kids Fun Run begins at the intersection of Detroit and Belle avenues
7 p.m. – Meltdown 5K begins at the intersection of Detroit and Belle avenues
7 p.m. – Live music on stage by alternative rock band Front Porch Lights

Families will love the street festival component, which features vendor tents from 70+ businesses and nonprofits organizations, many of which offer interactive opportunities. Activities range from the “Water Moose” sprinkler park to exercise demonstrations to a skateboard park.

The ever-popular Meltdown 5K serves as a fundraiser for LakewoodAlive. This staple of the Summer Meltdown draws hundreds of participants annually, as it features a fast course, chip timing, a 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 Gary K. Bish Memorial Beer Garden presented by First Federal Lakewood will complement dining options from vendors and food trucks. Live music by fan-favorite alternative rock band Front Porch Lights will delight the crowd as dusk turns to nightfall in beautiful Downtown Lakewood.
