As much as I love the listing of all the events, I wish there was more information regarding the events. Two events in particular I was interested in the Cuyahoga Falls Night at Blossom Music Center and Bicentennial Splash have no information regarding what the event will be, entertainment at the event, if there is a charge, etc.. The CFO website has a lack f information on the events. Is there anywhere you can get more information on the bicentennial event specifics?

For the Night at Blossom, the Cleveland Orchestra will be performing "A Night at the Opera". You can obtain up to eight (8) complimentary tickets by visiting City Hall. The Bicentennial Splash will be held at Water Works and all Falls residents receive complimentary admission. I believe you will need a CFOne card or some other proof of residency. If I can answer any other questions please let me know. Mike Penta - Bicentennial (Community Connections)

On Aug. 7th the Community Chorus Bicentennial concert also includes a performance at 7:00 of the New Horizons Band of Summit and Stark Counties, with Dick Goddard as our emcee and joining the band singing "God Bless America". New Horizons is a local chapter of a nationwide movement of music for older adults. Many of the members have been playing an instrument for less than a year. The group is fun and educational, and we are always looking for new members. Come and check us out!
