Drake to help celebrate Cleveland's 215th birthday
This year’s Ohio Homecoming celebration is about to be the best we’ve ever had.
Hip-hop star Drake, whose hits include “Best I Ever Had,” “Fancy” and “Find Your Love,” has been added to the lineup of the July 20-24 Ohio Homecoming celebration. (Click here for our story on the event.) He'll join Cleveland’s Bone Thugs-N-Harmony for the “Bone and Drake By the Lake Concert” at the Port of Cleveland Docks 28 & 30, behind Browns Stadium.
Last year’s event, celebrating Cleveland’s 214th birthday, featured Shaker Heights native and rapper Kid Cudi (who performs at the Q tonight). That concert, which drew thousands to downtown Cleveland's malls, was free with the purchase of an “I Am OHIO” T-shirt or a ticket to the other Ohio Homecoming events. However, Drake fans will have to pay a higher price. Tickets to the “Bone and Drake by the Lake” concert and events range from $45 to $75.
