3 Things Poppin' in Northeast Ohio: Sand Fest, Lakewood Arts Festival and Trap Karaoke

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, August 5- August 7. 

Trap Karaoke

Let’s start things off with some good ole karaoke, but with a twist.

The people behind Trap Karaoke are bringing the fun to the House of Blues on Saturday.

From 8 p.m. to midnight, attendees will be able to sing classic hip-hop and r & b hits while enjoying culture, community and personal empowerment.

You can buy tickets for this one-of-a-kind experience for just over $40.

Sand Fest

And if a day at the beach is more your speed, Sand Fest is returning to Edgewater beach on Saturday.

After a two-year hiatus, the Cleveland chapter of AIA is bringing back its annual fundraiser.

From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. the event combines a volleyball competition and a sandcastle construction competition.

The event raises money for AIA Cleveland’s mentor program. The family friendly event is free and open to the public.

The Lakewood Arts Festival 

And last, but not least, the Lakewood arts festival is back.

On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. guests will be able to enjoy the work of national and local artists plus live music and street performers.

The annual event has been around for more than four decades and aims to promote and encourage arts in the community.
