We celebrated living in West Park with family and friends all day in "Downtown" Kamm's Corners at the 4th Annual Hooley on Kamm’s Corners™ on Saturday, May 11, featuring activities for adults and children. There was no charge to enter the area of The Hooley™, thanks to our presenting sponsor, Fairview Hospital.

Bounce houses, pony rides, and a big inflatable fire truck slide returned! Kids romped in a special play area set up by Step2 in the Si Senor Mexican Restaurant parking lot. In addition, a Children's Tent sponsored by Cleveland Hopkins International Airport featured several fun crafts and "minute to win it" games, with assistance from the West Park-Fairview Family YMCA.
Interesting information and unique goods were available from the many booths lining each side of Lorain Avenue. (Listed below.) We satisfied our cravings from the abundant food offerings such as gyros, mini-meatball sandwiches, corned beef sandwiches, pizza, hand-dipped strawberries, ice cream, and freshly squeezed lemonade.
