Cautiously Optimistic about Summer in Avon Lake

We look forward with cautious optimism that we are getting past the grip of COVID-19, and will be able to enjoy activities that have not been possible for quite some time. The vaccination effort by Lorain County Public Health has been remarkable as the number of Lorain County residents who have received a COVID-19 vaccination continues to grow. Health commissioner David Covell reports that there is now an ample supply of vaccine available. If you haven’t received a vaccination, but would like to, please go to to schedule an appointment. Together we can make a difference.

The Memorial Day parade and ceremony will return this year. On Monday, May 31, we will remember the sacrifices of our military with a parade that kicks off at 10:00 a.m. at Avon Lake High School. Immediately following the parade, the Memorial Day ceremony will take place at Veterans Memorial Park. We hope you will join us in honoring our military on  this important occasion.

Preparations have begun to bring back the ever popular Big Trucks event on September 18. Due to COVID-19, the format may need to be modified for the protection of all. Stay tuned for further details.

The City of Avon Lake is committed to the health and safety of the community and will follow all COVID-19 guidelines
in effect from the State of Ohio at the time of the events.

Have a safe and happy summer.

Gregory J. Zilka
Mayor, City of Avon Lake
