Lock 3 can be found in downtown Akron and is known as a beacon of fun that's open year-round. In the Summer and Fall the area is host to outdoor movies, food festivals, and live local performances. In the Winter, Lock 3 truly comes alive with visits from Santa Claus, dinner with The Grinch, and a winter festival that boasts ice bumper cars, a holiday parade, a tree lighting ceremony, fireworks, and the largest ice skating rink in the state.

The Winter Blast Kickoff will begin this Friday, November 25th with an illuminated holiday parade to welcome Santa to town. A magical tree lighting and fireworks display will follow. This all-day festival is bound to get you into the Christmas spirit.
