Turning 100 is kind of a big deal. And Cleveland Metroparks is celebrating its centennial year by throwing a party this Saturday at Edgewater Park.

The event kicks off with live music at 2:30 p.m. including local food trucks and the newly opened Edgewater Beach House. Performances run all afternoon leading up to a big firework finale, set to music chosen by 106.5 FM The Lake.

“You only turn 100 once, so we want it to be a memorable experience for the community,” Cleveland Metroparks CEO Brian M. Zimmerman told Fox 8 Cleveland.

Be sure to get there early as the park is almost guaranteed to run out of parking. The the full entertainment schedule is below:

2:30 p.m. Forecast: Jazz
4 p.m. Trios: Rock
5:30 p.m. Old Boy: Original Music
7 p.m. Billy Morris and the Sunset Strip: 80s Rock
9 p.m. Michael Stanley & Friends: Classic Rock
9:40 p.m. Fireworks

This might also be a good time to go back and revisit all of Northeast Ohio's parks for some breathtaking vistas and some good bird watching spots. And don't worry, Saturday's event is just an added bonus, Edgewater Live still goes down tonight at the park.
