Cleveland West Side Market Centennial Festival

We had a such a great time at the June 2, 2012, Centennial Celebration kickoff for the West Side Market ( - - @WestSideMarket), that we decided to visit the October 7th Cleveland West Side Market Centennial Festival (Twitter hashtag: #WSM100) before attending the play Anything Goes at Playhouse Square ( - @PlayhouseSquare).

If you missed the West Side Market Centennial Kickoff, we want to invite you to view the fireworks here.

My Tweets &  Re-tweets

We planned to enter more tweets of the day, but ran out of time. The following are our own tweets and re-tweets.

West Side Market Photos

You will notice that we focused on the food of the market in our photos more than on the festival activities. We also spent some time watching the art work being created at Cleveland's Glass Bubble Project.

Go to to learn about their hand-blown glass artwork, free public demonstrations, private studio time, and glass blowing classes.


Playhouse Square Photos & Tweets

We saw an incredible rainbow while walking from the Playhouse Square Broadway Buzz to the Palace Theatre to see Anything Goes. Please be sure to click on the following photos to view.

If you have never attended these Cleveland Playhouse Square free pre-show talks, learn more about the Broadway Buzz here.

The play Anything Goes is in Cleveland until October 14th at Cleveland Playhouse Square, so get your tickets here. We saw a very full house and a standing ovation, as an indication of the joy the audience got from this Cleveland production of Anything Goes.
