CLEVELAND – The second Friday in June means it’s time for Walkabout Tremont. Professor Avenue has again been transformed into an arts, music and food fair. There were local artists, dancers and pop-up shops.
You don’t have to be a college professor (or even live on College Ave. or Professor Ave.) to have fun in Tremont. Especially at the Walkabout Tremont.

And business was booming. Grace Shoenberger picked up a present for her cousin. “I wanted to come here and I knew I would find something unique, like something she couldn’t reach like the mall,” Grace tells us.

The boardwalk allows people to have fun and explore Tremont, while supporting local businesses.
