For a few days in November, Euclid projection screens light up with the visions of independent artists. That's thanks to the Ohio Independent Film Festival, the flagship event of Independent Pictures. This year's festival features short and full-length films in a range of styles, including the documentary Project: ICE and dark coming-of-age drama B.F.E..

Since it began in 1893, the Cuyahoga County Fair has only missed three years: 1932, during the Great Depression, and 1942–43, during World War II. Every other year, local residents have flocked to the fairgrounds to sample the foods, ride the rides, and soak up entertainment that grows more diverse with each passing summer. Beyond a lineup of main events—such as concerts and motor-sports exhibitions—every day of the fair is an opportunity to zip along rides, see animals, and pit yourself against contests, including watermelon- and Ferris-wheel-eating competitions.

Guests can also flit from booth to booth sampling gluten-free items from both local and national manufacturers and merchants, such as Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery, Natural Nectar, Feel Good Foods, and Redwood Hill Farms.
