Taste of Tremont! Here are other festivals to check out this summer

CLEVELAND-- Today is Tremont's day to shine as thousands will file into the Cleveland neighborhood for Taste of Tremont.

Restaurants, including Lucky's Cafe, Fahrenheit and Dante, set up booths down Professor Avenue so you can sample their best offerings. Browse the vendors, enjoy a refreshing adult beverage in the beer garden and take it the music at one of the stages.

The event runs from noon to 8 p.m. It's recommended to take RTA and carpool, as parking can be limited.
