Editor's Note: We're saddened to hear that this event was marred by a shooting afterwards. Two teenagers were injured, but suspects are in custody.
Now that we're past Thanksgiving, there's no argument: The holiday season is here in Cleveland.
WinterLand, Downtown's annual extravaganza, solidified the sentiment with a tree-lighting ceremony, ice skating, Santa Claus appearances, performances and more on Saturday night.
The kickoff event was just the start to festive fun in Cleveland. Holiday lights displays will be on view through the season, and many holiday-themed events and activities will take place between now and New Year's Eve.
Check out all the fun at winterlandcle.com — and see more photos from the kickoff event.
