Euclid Beach Blast 2012 (Sat Aug 4 5-830pm) needs your help

EUCLID BEACH BLAST 2012 is almost here and we need your help to make it happen!

We need your support for live music, art installations, games, workshops, an after party at the Beachland Ballroom and much more!   

We are now raising money on Kickstarter for the Blast! If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, it is an online grassroots fundraising site with a catch: if we do not raise $2700.00 by August 1st, we do not get any of the money for the BLAST! That's why it is so important to promote the Beach Blast and the Kickstarter campaign to as many people you know. Donating is easy to do and just requires a quick sign up! Kickstarter has a $1 minimum donation requirement and also does not deduct from a donors bank account until the target goal is reached. Donor also get some awesome rewards (see the Backers section of the campaign page)! Again, your direct support is appreciated but spreading the word and promoting the campaign is what will get us to our goal!

Euclid Beach Blast is a free evening of fun for all ages! Here's a taste of what we're rolling out this year:ART-BEACHLAB art exhibition featuring Project Pop Up Galleries, Steve Ehert and more! Chalk the Walks with Hector Castellanos! MUSIC-Beachland Ballroom @ the Beach Live Music Series featuring Son Gitano and more! WORKSHOPS- Make your very own trash art at the Beachcraft Bar! Get your face painted too! Learn about how you can get involved with beach cleanups and other volunteer activities! GAMES-Hula hooping, Ladder Ball, I Spy beach trash edition, treasure hunts and a live photo and video contest uploaded to our facebook page! BIKES AND SKATEBOARDS- Join Bike Cleveland's Beach 2 Beach ride from Edgewater Park to Euclid Beach. Ride the bike obstacle course and catch a half pipe with the Pop Up Skate Kitchen Truck!
