CLEVELAND — Downtown Cleveland kicked off the holidays in style Saturday evening.

Winterfest started at 1:00 p.m. with free horse-drawn carriage rides from the Cleveland Public Library. Gourmet food trucks were also on hand between Superior and Euclid Avenues to feed the crowd of hundreds.

Around 6:15 p.m., officials flipped the holiday switch on both Terminal Tower and this year’s Christmas tree, a blue spruce from Sagamore Hills that stands nearly 60 feet tall.

The Downtown Cleveland Alliance partnered with GE Lighting, which illuminated Public Square with 372,000 LED lights, as well as 56,000 lights on the Christmas tree.

The event will finish off with an after-party with Santa and a majestic fireworks display.
