RIVEROCITY:  www.positivelycleveland.com/riverocity

Ask any local and you'll soon realize that the Cuyahoga River, the infamous river that connects with Lake Erie and cuts Cleveland into east and west sides, is one of the city's most undervalued natural attractions. Whether you're an avid kayaker, an active boater or just someone who enjoys natural beauty, the Cuyahoga River is a true gem.

This fall, three major Cleveland events -- Ingenuity Festival, Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta and The Cleveland Dragon Boat Festival - are taking place on the Cuyahoga River at the same time (Sept. 16-18). Appropriately titled "Riverocity," this weekend is a celebration of art and athleticism on the Cuyahoga River.

Conveniently located next to one another, visitors can easily hop from one event to another. This is a great opportunity to check out some truly unique events on our beloved Cuyahoga River right here in Cleveland Plus.
