CLEVELAND (WJW) — Winterfest kicked off Sunday afternoon with ice skating and carriage rides on Public Square, but the main event hit the night sky at 7:30 p.m.
Along with a special appearance from Santa Claus, the downtown tree lighting ceremony took place with fireworks sealing the deal.
Following a scaled-back event due to COVID-19 in 2020, this year’s happening saw a return to tradition for the free, family-friendly event.
