Cleveland Founders' Day may land officially on Saturday, but you can celebrate the city's 221st birthday today at Wade Oval in University Circle.

Thanks to University Circle, Clevelanders free from work (even if just on a quick lunch break) can partake in free birthday ice cream and cake from noon to 2 p.m — just the way city founder General Moses Cleaveland would want.

Also expect awesome things like a bounce house, lawn games, Solar Car Races at noon and more.

For those looking to celebrate Cleveland's real birthday, revel in fireworks at Edgewater Park, which honors the Metroparks system turning 100. So many birthdays right now.
