MetroHealth's Cool Zone tent at Taste of Tremont a big hit

Thousands of people – and their pets – flocked to MetroHealth's Cool Zone tent at this summer’s Taste of Tremont festival, where misting fans and cushy lounge chairs offered a break from the heat.

The cool factor was doubled by the Blender Bike, which offered visitors the opportunity to create healthy smoothies by pedaling a human-powered blender on the back of a bicycle, graciously donated for the event by Bike Cleveland.

MetroHealth police officers also distributed 1,000 gun locks and demonstrated how to safely secure guns. And MetroHealth medics and nurses provided first aid, riding to the rescue on bikes.

Serving as presenting sponsor is one way MetroHealth is supporting our West Side neighbors.

And next year? Our Taste of Tremont tent will be even cooler.
