What made the summertime special when growing up in Cleveland? The final school bell has rung, so put on your shades, slather on the sunscreen, and relive some of your fondest memories . . .
Taking a dip at the city pool with your best friends. Building a sandcastle in your clam diggers at Edgewater Park. Pulling up to Manners Big Boy in your parents’ car for a burger and a Big Ghoulardi. Cooling off with a ornate sundae at Boukair’s near the Palace Theatre. Watching the Indians lose (again) but being dazzled by the fireworks at Municipal Stadium. Riding the Rocket Ship and then being terrified by Laughing Sal at Euclid Beach Park. Packing a picnic for the first season at Blossom.
Enjoy stories told by dozens of Northeast Ohioians who shared in the same fun and excitement of growing up here. Look inside and rediscover some of your own Cleveland summertime memories!
