For past Christmases, Holiday CircleFest in University Circle was a signature event on the first Sunday in December. This year it expands its brand to cover the full weekend.
Saturday shows off a new Holiday Market, with outdoor shopping, horse-drawn carriage rides, ice carvings and Santa Claus at the skating rink on Wade Oval.
The Sunday lineup is more the “classic” Circlefest, with neighboring institutions and attracts open to the public, church choirs, the 5:30pm lighting of the Wade Oval Tree and the ensuing Winter Lights parade of lanterns created under tutelage of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Admission is free.
