Buzzard Frame


Hinckley, Ohio is famously known for its annual Buzzard’s Day celebration in mid-March. The world-renowned event is proudly sponsored and organized by the Hinckley Chamber of Commerce, comprised of  local residents and business-owners invested in this vibrant community located mid-way between Cleveland and Akron. Proceeds benefit local scholarships.
