A few weeks back, we heard the end may be near after 28 years of Rockin' on the River in Cuyahoga Falls. Tonight the promoters of the event made it official: Rockin' is leaving Cuyahoga Falls.
Here is their statement:
We sincerely want to thank all of you who have supported the fight to keep Rockin’ on the River in Cuyahoga Falls, but after talking to the chairman of the new festival committee this week, we were informed that there will be several changes for the 2015 season pertaining to the Friday night concert series. These include shortening of hours and committee input on both entertainment and vendors. Being that we fund the entire event, we find this unacceptable. It is therefore obvious to us that it’s time to find a new home. We have enjoyed our time in Cuyahoga Falls and look forward to letting you know where we will be in 2015. The last Rockin’ on the River in Cuyahoga Falls will be August 29th. Come celebrate these last 2 weeks with us!
