Some might debate whether we’re heading into the “most wonderful time of the year,” as the old Andy Williams holiday chestnut maintains. But Cleveland’s Winterfest celebration at Public Square will attempt to jumpstart some seasonal spirit with a series of all-day activities that culminate from 6-7:10 p.m. with a tree-lighting, a concert featuring guitarist Neil Zaza and the Singing Angels, and the Cleveland sure-fire pleaser, a fireworks display. During the day, there’ll be free horse-drawn carriage rides departing from Old Stone Church, a Christmas Village on the Public Square quadrant in front of Terminal Tower that will offer crafts, games and refreshments, music by local bands and activities throughout downtown at venues like the Cleveland Public Library, the Arcade and Tower City.
