The annual North Coast Harbor Boating & Fishing Fest is set for June 11-12 in Voinovich Park in downtown Cleveland.

The event will offer free powerboat rides from local boaters and dealers and sailboat rides and fishing trips for visitors of all ages. Admission will be free, and those who attend will have the opportunity to help paddle a 48-foot, 20-person dragon boat provided by the Cleveland Dragon Boat Association.

Last year’s festival drew thousands to the waterfront, requiring the boats to run continuously from open to close to get everyone out on the water, organizers said.

On land there will be giveaways, food, live music, educational exhibits and appearances by Capt’n Willie the Great Lakes Pirate.

The event is funded through grants from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Watercraft and the National Water Safety Congress; and donations from the Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife, the Greater Cleveland Safety Council, the Woods and Waters Club of Cleveland and others.
