CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Metroparks and Sprint have joined forces and they have a huge announcement to make.

The Cleveland Metroparks hosts entertainment events every year throughout the summer and it has big plans to make this year even more exciting.

"Taste on the Lake"

This summer, Cleveland Metroparks will serve up a creative showcase of local food, beverages, arts and music from some of Cleveland's finest artists.

The two-day concert will take place on Saturday, July 7, and Sunday, July 8.

There will be live entertainment each night on the iHeartRadio Main Stage and local and regional artists will have art displays, demonstrations as well as artwork for retail.

General admission tickets are on sale now at a special pre-sale price of $20. One food and beverage sample are included with admission.

VIP tickets are $75 and include reserved parking, private restrooms, eight food and beverage samples, plus more.

In June, the Metroparks will bring a new, free four-week Sunday concert series, 'Lakefront Originals', to Edgewater Beach.

The music series will feature local talent, performing their own original pieces and each week, two bands will play from 4–7 p.m.

This will be an interactive process as the public will have the chance to vote for online to choose two 'Lakefront Originals' bands to open up for artists at Taste on the Lake the following month.
