April Events in Northeast Ohio

Spring is almost here. The days are longer, the sun shines more warmly and the backyard has got little spots of green growing up through the brown and gray of winter. Northeast Ohio doesn’t hibernate during the winter, but now that the weather’s turned a little more forgiving, there’s even more reason to get out and about. Below we’ve put together a list of some fun activities for family, friends, or just some solo time.
