Great Lakes Sports Festival and more

Since the early days of Michelangelo, there have been dynamic parallels between art and the human form. The time and study of both can lead you into fascinating places with hard work, proper technique and the ability to believe in what can happen when the mind and the body connect.

This weekend, Erie is lucky enough to have an event showcasing the ultimate collaboration. Saturday, August 29th and Sunday the 30th the Great Lakes Sports Festival takes place at the Erie Bayfront Convention Center, and will present some of the finest athletes from a variety of disciplines right alongside some of Erie’s most hard working and talented Artists. Hosted by Jack Sullivan (NPC National Heavyweight) Owner of Erie’s REAL TRAINING & FITNESS and Gary Udit (NPC Regional Chairman) of Pittsburgh PA, the Great Lakes Sports Festival will highlight some of the greatest athletes from around the region. This unique festival not only champions athletes and people passionate about health and fitness, it appeals to the whole family (kids under 12 get free admission!) and offers an assortment of activities, vendors and events packed into this two-day Festival in Erie, PA.

TKO Vapor presents: the Big Cloud Contest

A few years ago when people were trying to figure out an alternative to cigarettes, vaping was born. The act of “smoking” something not as harmful as straight nicotine was appealing; think of a hookah, flavored vapors, special devices with unique add-ons that could be customized to a user’s choosing. Being in a fun and social environment and partaking in an enjoyable activity was pretty cool! It produced a whole subculture that took off around the world. You could do it with your friends, pick out a flavor, hang out in a unique and hip spot. It’s affordable, healthier than cigarettes, and hey, they even host fun events to make the experience even more enjoyable. Here in Erie, sometimes it can be difficult to find fun things to do.
