The Republican National Convention Cleveland 2016 Host Committee wants to thank the city for its patience and unwavering support last week. So they're throwing a party.

The Community Thank You Party will be held from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. this Saturday on Public Square, which glistened like a gem after its celebratory unveiling party a few weeks ago and certainly through last week. There will be live entertainment, giveaways, family friendly fun and ice cream from Mitchell's.

"We hope people from across the region will come downtown throughout the weekend to commemorate the unprecedented effort that went into hosting this Convention," RNC Host Committee President David Gilbert told

In addition to the party, the Rock Hall will also be free from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. to all residents with zip codes beginning with 440, 441, 442 and 443.
