3 Things Poppin' in Northeast Ohio: Sneaker Expo, Wizard of Oz ballet, and Fight for Air Climb

Get out an enjoy all that Northeast Ohio has to offer.

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, May 13 - May 15.

Feet Geeks Sneaker Expo

If you or someone you know is looking for some fresh kicks, you’ll definitely want to stop buy the sneaker Club Expo at Tower City.

The event is powered by Feet Geeks and guests will have the chance to buy, sell, or trade their favorite kicks or streetwear pieces while enjoying music, food, live raffles and more.

You can get fresh on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. or on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now for $10 bucks or you can get them, for $20 at the door.

Wizard of Oz Ballet 

And if sneakers and streetwear aren’t your style, how about following the yellow brick road to the Lorain Palace Theater for a production of The Wizard of Oz.

The folks at North Pointe Ballet will showcase Janet Dziak’s interpretation of the classic. Dorothy and her new friends will dance their way to discovering there’s no place like home.

There are shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday and tickets start at $20.

Fight for Air Climb

 How about raising money for a good cause? 

On Sunday, the American Lung Association is hosting Fight for Air climb at Progressive Field.

Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran climber, there’s a place for everyone.

There’s a fundraising minimum of $100, but the good news is that the Cleveland chapter is more than 90 percent of the way to their $100,000 goal.
