In its second year, CLE NYE, this year on Mall B, expects to attract upwards of 20,000 guests! (Last year’s inaugural bash on Public Square had 15,000 Clevelanders waving glowsticks in the cold and snow and the response was overwhelmingly positive). If you’re into the Times Square-type outdoor extravaganza, this is the event for you. Machine Gun Kelly is slated to headline during the 10 o’clock hour, and a beer garden, food trucks and fireworks will all be part of the package. Bring hats and gloves and scarves (and plenty of cash) for this romp which is fast becoming an NEO holiday tradition, thanks to Alonzo Mitchell and his Ohio Homecoming gang. There’s already a countdown on the website! Doors: 8 p.m. Tickets: $10, general; $150 VIP, which includes hors d’oeuvres, five drinks, heated indoor space, coat check and complimentary parking.
