Walkabout Tremont

Tremont is one of my favorite local neighborhoods. It’s an eclectic mix of commercial, residential, artsy, urban and green space. This area south of downtown Cleveland holds many events throughout the year, and one of them is this weekend.

Walkabout Tremont takes place the second Friday of each month. It’s an art walk and then some. Many of the galleries are open, as are shops, bars and restaurants. Some shops have sidewalk sales when weather permits and indoor sales regardless of the temperature.

Each month’s Walkabout Tremont has a unique theme. Last month’s was “Walkabout Like a Pirate” and August’s was “Let’s Luau.” In July, the last time I attended, the theme was “American Classics.” I don’t know what that title means, but among the opportunities were visiting with alpacas, and adoptable dogs like Marbles (pictured here); riding for free on Lolly the Trolley; and getting deals on handmade jewelry and food. Several bars had drink specials as well.

This Friday is “Trick or Treat: Arts and Eats,” which is geared for kids and adults (and dogs). Among the planned activities are pumpkin carving and decorating and a costume contest for dogs and their humans. Bars and restaurants will offer “spooky specials” as well. The event goes from 5 to 10 p.m. with the center of activity on Professor Avenue.

Lolly the Trolley isn't part of the event, so be prepared to put the "walk" in the Walkabout. Arrive early if you can. Parking can be challenging in Tremont.
