Cleveland Holiday Tree

(Cleveland) - With Downtown Cleveland Alliance‚Äôs much-anticipated Winterfest celebration set for Saturday, November 25th, decorating is in full swing in Downtown Cleveland. 

This includes the arrival of the annual Holiday Tree, a 50-foot-tall evergreen donated by the Hlavin family of Sagamore Hills, that made its debut in the green located on the north side of Public Square on Tuesday afternoon. 

The lighting and decorating of Downtown is made possible by Downtown Cleveland Alliance, GE Lighting and Cleveland Public Power, with labor provided by IBEW Local 38. 

GE Lighting has donated all of the lights for Downtown Cleveland, a tradition for more than 30 years. 

Workers are continuing to prepare the tree for the lightening ceremony on November 25th. Thousands are expected to attend this holiday event. 

Public Square is once again the home to Winterfest on November 25th, and will host a variety of family-friendly activities during the Saturday event, starting at 1 p.m. 

It features the return of the Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink, which is free during the entire day of the Winterfest celebration, thanks to the support of the Cleveland Foundation. 

The ceremonial lighting of the Holiday Tree and Downtown starts at 6 p.m.
