One day isn’t enough to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Holiday Circlefest. This year’s event will last a whole weekend.
You can shop inside and outside, ice skate, get a photo with Santa, take a horse-drawn carriage ride and enjoy live music during the celebration, which begins at 5 p.m. Friday and continues Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
From 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, you also can visit the museums and other University Circle institutions for free. The photo you see here is from the Cleveland History Center’s “Cleveland Starts Here” exhibit. Holiday Circlefest concludes at 5:30 p.m. with the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Winter Lights Lantern Procession.
This is a fantastic event. It’s well organized and offers so many activities. I’m glad the celebration will be extended this year. If I have one complaint about Holiday Circlefest, it’s that you can’t see and do everything it offers in just one afternoon.
You can walk your way through much of the event, but free shuttles also will be available. The CircleLink Shuttle can take you to the nearby Little Italy Art Walk as well. Come back to the blog Friday for more on that.
