Celebrate high summer with fine food and drink, music, dancing, art, and fireworks all under the verdant canopies of Frontier Park at the fourth annual ArborEAT’em, a fundraiser hosted by Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier Park.

This casual but luxe evening will give you, for an all-inclusive admission price, the opportunity to sample food and drink from local and out-of-town chefs; appreciate (and buy) nature-based artwork from local artists Joyce Perowicz, Toni Kelly, Jan Lutz, Brian Pardini and others; and enjoy music by guitarist Chuck Buhl and Man’s Room Band. Other interesting entertainment — tarot card readings, a henna station, and caricature artist — will also be on hand to amuse. If that’s not enough, the fireworks start at 9:30!

Alas, the Aug. 13 deadline for advanced reservations at $85 has passed, but you can still get in the door for $95. All proceeds, including a percentage of art sales, goes to helping LEAF maintain the facilities and offer programming to the community.

Helping out may have never been so yummy. – Mary Birdsong

6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22 // 1501 W. Sixth St. // 453.5323, leaferie.org
