As a way of saying thank you to PlayhouseSquare (@PlayhouseSquare) and Cleveland Play House (@ClevePlayHouse) for Holidazzle, and to Downtown Cleveland Alliance (@DowntownCLE), Cleveland Public Library (@Cleveland_PL), and Cleveland Public Square (@CLEPublicSquare) for Cleveland Winterfest 2016, we have gathered our photos and tweets from the day. We enjoy these great events every year.
We also want to mention the role that the Cleveland Foundation (@CleveFoundation) is taking this year with the new Cleveland Public Square. The foundation is supporting a winter skating program and the year-round Cleveland Foundation Centennial Plaza.

The Downtown Cleveland Alliance YouTube video entitled Downtown Cleveland - One More Time was shown as part of Cleveland Winterfest 2016, and currently is being shown in the background of the Downtown Cleveland Alliance website. I wanted to include the video here not only because it was shown during the event, but -- small world! -- my sister and brother-in-law are in this video!
