In collaboration with the Burning River Foundation, Fresh Water
sponsored a photo contest in honor of the 45th Anniversary of the last burning of the Cuyahoga River. In anticipation of this weekend's Burning River Fest, we asked to see your best water-themed photos.
Picking the winners was Fresh Water
managing photographer Bob Perkoski. One first prize winner received two VIP tickets to Burning River Fest and two 2014 Burning River Fest T-Shirts ($140 value). One second prize winner received four general admission tickets and one 2014 Burning River Fest T-Shirt ($80 value). One third prize winner received two general admission tickets to the Fest ($30 value). Below are the winners and some of the best entries.
The 2014 Burning River Fest
will be held July 25th and 26th from 6-11 p.m. at the Historic Coast Guard Station at Whiskey Island (2800 Whiskey Island Drive, Cleveland, OH 44102). It features live music, fresh food and chef demos from local farms and eateries, educational exhibits, artists from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Parade the Circle and a special appearance by Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Christmas Ale.
Proceeds from the Fest benefit the Burning River Foundation, a local non-profit organization that has donated almost $400,000 to date towards the sustainable future of our waterways.
