CLEVELAND - Public Square is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and Saturday night, the space  officially lit up for the holidays!

For the first time in over 15 years, there's a skating rink in the Square.

(More details on free skating and the rink's hours here)

Winterfest opened at 1 p.m. on Saturday, and the big lighting took place at 6 p.m. The tree and the Square took on a decidedly festive scene with the lights and a visit from Santa himself.
