Sunday May 3rd at Fairport Harbor!

Fairport Harbor is north of Route 2, just east of Mentor Headlands, which many of you may be familiar with so we’re still in relatively familiar territory. The Village of Fairport Harbor will be sanctioning the event, and the community is excited about the prospect of making this a fairly regular thing. We’d like to be invited back, so if we could keep any raucous down to a dull roar that would greatly increase our chances of making this a regular stop for our GTGs. It’s a relatively small town with a couple of restaurants, several bars, and a few shops if you feel like exploring. The plan is to park around the town square, which is really a nice, grassy park. We may park along some of the adjacent streets, too, but only if necessary. True to its name, it is a harbor town, so there will be a lot of photo ops with Lake Erie in the background including dead-end streets, the beach and an inlet. There is also a lighthouse, a marina, a small skate park and some unused factories/warehouses in town. A few other great backdrops are nearby including Pickle Bills in Grand River and Mentor Headlands in Mentor, both located off of Rt. 44 North.

While I admit last year's event was a bit of a dud, this year is already shaping up to be pretty amazing. The city of Fairport Harbor has sanctioned the event and will be shutting down three city blocks around the park. Look forward to seeing everyone this year! Below are some pics of the town that should prevent a lot of great photo opportunities.
