North Coventry block party is Aug. 4

On Aug. 4, FutureHeights, in partnership with the city of Cleveland Heights and several community groups, will host a back-to-school block party in the North Coventry neighborhood. The event will celebrate the beginning of a new school year with food, music and other activities. The party will take place from noon to 3 p.m. on Avondale Avenue, a portion of which the city will close for the event.

During the party, Artful Cleveland will outline a community art piece that party attendees can help bring to life. Ensemble Theatre will facilitate theater games. Lake Erie Ink will help community members create a “story quilt” by piecing together short responses to a prompt. Children be able to play in the bounce house provided by Amazing Bouncers Ohio. The Cleveland Heights Fire Department will visit, giving everyone the opportunity to meet local firefighters and explore a fire truck.

If you live in the North Coventry neighborhood and are interesting in helping with the event, contact Courtney Arbogast at the FutureHeights office, 216-320-1423 or
