Blossom-Concert, Cannon Blasts and Fireworks!!

Patriotic music played by the one and only Cleveland Orchestra, picnic, tasty food and alcoholic beverages (yes, we are allowed to bring our own), great company, awesome cannon blasts for the 1812 overture and spectacular fireworks in the summer sky... This is what Independence Day is all about!! (Just forget I am Japanese for a second, okay?)  I have been so busy, I thought about skipping this concert, but it's just not 4th of July without this concert for me!! And I hope some of you feel the same out there!!!  And if you have never experienced this awesome concert before, this is the year you start enjoying one of the most fabulous events Northeast Ohio has to offer!!  The concert starts at 8 PM. You can also buy tickets at the gate, the day of the concert.  Lawn ticket is $23 each. Bring food, drinks, chair, blanket, cards, whatever you would like to do outside on the lawn with spectacular music.  Nature will be providing the amazing weather for us (if the weather man is right).  PLEASE arrive as early as possible.  Concert does not start until 8... HOWEVER, this is a very popular event and the lawn fills up VERY QUICKLY.  If you come late or even close to 8, we may never find each other!  :'(   If you could shoot for getting to Blossom parking lot at 6:30-7:00, that would be great!  By the time you get the ticket, settle down and crack open a beer, it'll be the perfect timing for the concert!!   I will try to get there by 6 and hold some space for us with a blanket or two.  

This is how we will find each other: I will give a phone number to all the attendees before the concert.  After you get the ticket, you can call that number and I can come to meet you at a specific place (like in front of funnel cake stand etc...) then take you to "our space".  Also, we can communicate using this page if you have a smart phone.  I will be checking all the posts.  

Here are the details on the concert: "Blossom Festival Band

Loras John Schissel, conductor 

A Salute to America 

Northeast Ohio’s favorite Independence Day concerts feature patriotic favorites from some of the country’s best-loved composers, including Gershwin and Sousa, topped off with the “1812” Overture and a spectacular fireworks display. "

    Everyone, here is the direction! Pass the gate. Find the information booth on the left. Take a right turn there to go down the hill. Take the first left to walk behind the pavilion. Walk to the center and wave!!

    Cant make it afterall. I don't know the area good enough to find where to park, etc. Staying home instead & watching fireworks on TV. Sorry to have to change my RSVP.

    Anyone has a deck of cards?

    I apologize, had some issues come up that prevent me from attending, perhaps next time I will be able to attend.

    July 4, 2014

    • Miki

      Thank you for letting us know, rick!! Hope to see you at a hike soon!

      July 4, 2014

  • Miki

    Nadia, I will email all the attendees a phone number to call before the concert. There is no permission to ask for. And it is very difficult to purchase tickets as group considering unfortunately high rates of no shows in meetup in general. And you don't have to sign up to any event if you don't feel comfortable with the set up of the event. I hope that we will have a good time but everyone feels differently about what type of event they like to attend. Thank you for your feedback!

    I am already going to be there with friends but would like to know where you are to stop by and visit.

      Great!!! Can u Facebook msg me?

    About what time is early? I plan on getting there early also. I don't like running in at the last moment.

    July 4, 2014

    • Ellie

      I was thinking around 6ish so I allow enough time in case traffic from where I drive from plus parking at blossom.

      July 4, 2014

    • Miki

      Yeah, sounds great, Ellie. It's not so close from the parking lot to the gate. That's the "hike" part of this event lol!

      July 4, 2014

  • Miki

    Just look for a Japanese person with a messed up face... I was in a bike accident yesterday and my face is all banged up with a fake tooth and all LOL. I almost canceled this meetup but I decided I want to spend time with my dear friends laughing and having a great time, instead of sitting at home being sad about my scary face!! So let's have fun, everyone!! :D

    Went last year and had a great time! Miki, I am planning on getting there early as well-I know how packed it gets!

    July 4, 2014

    • Ellie

      Yes, will bring a blanket or two.

      July 4, 2014

    • Miki

      Awesome!! It'll be fun!!!!

      July 4, 2014

  • Nadia

    well, i understand that it is probably some dangerous people online and it is not safe to post cell number, however it will make meeting with unknown people very inconvenient for the modest person like me. I do not consider it as an organized event when each individual has to buy its own ticket, roam for an hour through unknown crowd hoping that the event host will give a permission to call him/her after buying ticket.

    July 2, 2014

  • Geoffrey k.

    Hello, I have lived in the Cleveland area my whole life and have never been to Blossom! This sounds like a lot of fun! It will be nice to meet new people also!

    2 · July 2, 2014

  • Miki

    I will give a phone number to all the attendees before the concert. After you get the ticket, you can call that number and I can come to meet you at a specific place (like in front of funnel cake stand etc...) then take you to "our space". Also, you can post it on this page with your smart phone. I will be checking. (We tried to meet at the gate at a certain time last year, but it didn't work because it's very hard for everyone to arrive at the same time, because it's hard to guess how much time it would take to walk from your car to the concert, how long you would wait to get the ticket etc.)

    Just moved back to the area & have heard great things about Blossom fireworks & concert. How will everyone find the group at the concert?

    July 1, 2014

    it would be helpful to have your cell phone number
