The 9th Annual Winterfest

Downtown Cleveland lit up the sky at the 9th Annual Winterfest! There surely was no better way to kick-off the Holiday Season than to bring family and loved ones down to see a breath-taking lighting display! The activities began under the new GE chandelier in Playhouse Square!

^The Holiday season is the most beautiful time of year here in Cleveland, we could not simply ask for more! Speaking of the Holiday Season, that brings me to the next story:

Trim-A-Tree Event at City Hall

It wouldn’t be Christmas time in Cleveland, if I did not mention the Trim-A-Tree Event that took place at the City Hall Rotunda! Mayor Frank G. Jackson was joined by over 200 children from City of Cleveland Recreation Centers. The children brought homemade ornaments to decorate the donated tree for the holiday season as well as enjoyed a “Jingle Bells” sing-a-long and a visit from Santa Claus.
