CHAGRIN FALLS -- What are you doing for New Year's Eve?

There are huge parties in both downtown Cleveland and downtown Akron.

But if you are out in far eastern Cuyahoga County or far western Geauga County, you might want to "pop" downtown in the historic village for a family-friendly event.

Starting at 10:30 p.m. at the Chagrin Falls Township Hall at 83 North Main Street, everyone can warm up with free cocoa, coffee and donuts before the midnight Popcorn Ball drop over in Triangle Park.

Dewey Forward, proprietor of the landmark Popcorn Shop above the falls, fashioned it for tonight's celebration. A second reason is to draw attention to the planned renovations for Township Hall.
