The show is centered around environmental awareness as well as cleaning up Downtown Akron. With the help of students, parents and local residents, the event is expected to reach over 300 volunteers.

The volunteers pick up trash and thousands of cigarette butts; sweep multiple blocks of sidewalks; wash paper boxes, parking meters, benches, and bus shelters. They also paint railings, fire hydrants, light poles, and parking meters. As well as beautifying mulch beds with flowers.

Fallsway was invited by the city because of the close relationship with their maintenance crews and other public services. Three employees went down to represent Fallsway: Jeff Mcdiffitt who is in charge of our Police and Fire division, Sam White who is a Truck Equipment Salesmen who helps the city of Akron purchase vehicles for servicing the city, and Nick Beagle who took pictures of the event and worked as a Public Relations Representative.
