Downtown Cleveland's Winterfest celebration is set to twinkle once again this year. Scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 30 — yes, two days after Thanksgiving, as it should be — the public is invited to Public Square for a tree lighting ceremony and other family merriment.

The event, which kicks off at 9 a.m., includes ice skating, horse-drawn carriage rides, food trucks, live music, craft stations, fireworks and a Santa sighting.



Those wanting to take advantage of the fist day of ice skating in public square should arrive starting at 9 a.m. to secure a time slot. Tickets are $10 and come with skate rentals. Those with their own skates only have to pay $7. The rink stays open until Feb. 28.

Note that the all-important tree lighting ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m.
