Get out and explore all that Northeast Ohio has to offer this weekend!

CLEVELAND — Have you lived in Northeast Ohio forever, or maybe you're new to the area? Whatever your story, the region has tons to offer when it comes to experiences and adventures.

However, at times it can be hard to find and narrow down the best ways to spend your time. That's where I come in.

Normally, I keep you up to date on the latest pop culture stories every day in "Pop Break" on "What's New" at 5 p.m. But now, with this new segment "3 Things Poppin' in Northeast Ohio," I'll be sharing with you my picks for trendy things to do on the weekends.

So without further delay, here's what I think you should check out this weekend, July 22-24!

Odd Fest

Up first, how about spending the day at Odd Fest with the folks from Platform Beer Company?

Odd Fest is all about trying new things, and on Saturday from 2-9 p.m., they'll be plenty of opportunities to do just that. There'll be tarot card readings, virtual reality experiences, airbrush body art, and so much more. The night will end with a performance from Welshly Arms. 

Tickets to Odd Fest start at just $25. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
