Patchy Things to Do Before Summer is Over
Do you have a summer bucket list? Make sure you don't miss out on summer activities and events in nearby communities before fall is here!
Where did the summer go? School is starting very soon and there's only a little bit of time left to pack in the summertime fun.
(Fall begins Sept. 21 this year.)
Here's a list of suggested things to do in Northeast Ohio before cooler weather and earlier sunsets hit:
• Kent Patch: Residents (and Kent State students) should take a trip on the Cuyahoga River before summer ends with Crooked River Adventures. The canoe and kayak livery, operated by Kent State University, offers different length boat trips on the river that start at John Brown Tannery Park in Kent and end in Munroe Falls and Cuyahoga Falls. For information about on cost, hours of operation and trip times, visit the Crooked River Adventures website.
• Stow Patch: It's peak season for corn and other locally grown produce in Ohio right now. Be sure to stop by the Stow Community Farmers Market at the Stow Community United Church of Christ (off of Graham Road). Even if you don't make it this summer, the market stays open until October.
• Fairlawn-Bath Patch: Tour Hale Farm & Village in Bath Township before its summer season ends. The outdoor living history museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays until Aug. 31, then switches to its fall schedule of weekends-only tours.
