Cleveland has some pretty exciting things happening this year. One of the most energetic is the Dazzle the District celebration on May 2. Playhouse Square is making history and changing the face of downtown with significant neighborhood renovations. There will be dramatic new lights and video signage around PlayhouseSquare, elegant gateways, a "retro" sign inspired by PlayhouseSquare's 1920 roots and the world's largest outdoor chandelier - the GE Chandelier.
This is going to be an unveiling that will go down in history. It will be one of those events that you will kick yourself if you miss.
The best part?
It is FREE!
Check out this video about the GE Chandelier. It is pretty cool.
Here are the details for the event:
