About Cleveland: Return of the Buzzards and the Cleveland Auto Show
Tired of all the snow? Are you ready to start thinking spring? What better way to kick off the change of seasons than by celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Return of the Buzzards.
Long heralded as the start of spring in northeast Ohio, the annual Return of the Buzzards occurs on Thursday morning, March 15, as hundreds of turkey vultures, commonly known as buzzards, return to the Buzzard Roost in Cleveland Metroparks’ Hinckley Reservation. The large black birds with six-foot wingspans appear like clockwork every March 15 in the early morning. Join fellow enthusiasts to witness this phenomenon and welcome the start of spring.
Can't quite make it out to Hinckley by 7:00 a.m. on March 15? Then join in the annual fun-filled family-oriented Buzzard Sunday celebrations. The festival is held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 18, at the Buzzard Roost in the Cleveland Metroparks’ Hinckley Reservation. A family-oriented event, Buzzard Sunday celebrations include children’s crafts, naturalist-led hikes, refreshments, live entertainment, and live animal programs. So bring your child (or inner-child) and have some fun.
Has all that white stuff made your car look like it has seen better days? Are you dreaming of driving down the road in a convertible with the sun shining on your face? Curious to see what future cars may look like? Then head over to the Cleveland Auto Show.
