CLEVELAND – Spring has arrived on the north coast, and if you’ve got a case of spring fever and need to get out of the house, we’ve put together a list of fun things to do. There are festivals and all sorts of fun events….indoors and outdoors (because we all know that spring in northeast Ohio can mean lots of rain and maybe a snowflake or two). There’s something for everyone here!

Enjoy!
