Cleveland Public Power, Cleveland Water Pollution Control and Cleveland Water are proud sponsors of this year’s Winterfest celebration, the official kickoff to the holiday season.
Join us on Saturday, November 25 at Downtown Cleveland’s Public Square beginning at 1 p.m. for this free, family-friendly event. Find our booth inside Tower City Center with the Pop-Up Shops where local retailers will be offering perfect holiday gifts.
Come win a prize by playing our wildly fun Cleveland Water Trivia. Children can enjoy a wintery craft by making their very own Cleveland Water hot chocolate mug. We’ll supply all the materials for this fun activity. And to stay warm all season long, we’re giving everyone who stops by a recipe card for Cleveland Water hot chocolate.
Cleveland Water is sponsoring free horse-drawn carriage rides through Downtown. Pick up timed carriage ride passes starting at 12:30 p.m. in the tent across from Old Stone Church. Rides run until 4 p.m. We’ll be keeping the horses hydrated during their breaks with Cleveland Water.
Powered by Cleveland Public Power, Public Square and the annual holiday tree are decorated with a half a million twinkling lights. The ceremonial lighting of the holiday tree and Downtown starts at 6 p.m. and includes a fireworks show, followed by a concert and an after-party in the Tri-C Hospitality Management Center.
All day there will be live musical entertainment, gourmet food trucks, ice skating, pictures with Santa, and activities throughout Downtown.
