Lakewood Summer Meltdown 2020 (Canceled)

August 8, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Lakewood Summer Meltdown 2020 Canceled due to COVID-19 Pandemic

In an effort to ensure health and safety for members of our community, LakewoodAlive announces that Lakewood Summer Meltdown 2020 has been canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Virtual Meltdown 5K LogoSponsored by Melt Bar and Grilled, the Summer Meltdown serves as one of the region’s most anticipated street parties.  In April, LakewoodAlive rescheduled the Summer Meltdown for August in hopes of being able to safely orchestrate a scaled-down version of this free community event.  Since then, however, it has become increasingly clear that hosting an event the magnitude of the Summer Meltdown would pose a health and safety risk to attendees, volunteers, vendors, staff and the community as a whole.

“After extensive discussions with our many stakeholders, including the City of Lakewood, we have made the decision to cancel Lakewood Summer Meltdown 2020,” said Ian Andrews, LakewoodAlive’s Executive Director.  “Ultimately, ensuring the well-being of our community must always be our top priority.  We look forward to having the Summer Meltdown return in the future.”

Thank You, Virtual Meltdown 5K Participants!
On behalf of the entire LakewoodAlive family, a huge THANK YOU to the 160+ community members and supporters from near and far who participated in our Virtual Meltdown 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Run & Walk from July 15 to 31! Your swift strides and generous spirits empower our organization to continue to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods within the city we love. (view race results here)
