There’s something so Gilmore Girls-y about a neighborhood tree lighting. Find your own Stars Hollow at one of these three free celebrations.
Euclid Holiday Celebration - Dec. 6
Horse-drawn wagon and train rides highlight this year’s event. But don’t miss out on treating yourself to hot cocoa, s’mores and more at the Holiday Bistro. Shore Cultural Centre, 291 E. 222nd St., Euclid, 216-289-8578, shoreculturalcentre.com
Broadview Heights Community Holiday Party and Tree Lighting - Dec. 7
While these events feature fireworks and photos with Santa, pass some of the good vibes on by bringing a nonperishable item for the Yuletide Hunger Program. Broadview Heights Community and Recreation Center, 9543 Broadview Road, Broadview Heights, 440-838- 4522, broadview-heights.org
Light Up Lakewood - Dec. 7
Small town pride might be a stretch since 20,000 people flock to downtown Lakewood for this annual all-day bash, but this one is still can’t-miss thanks to fireworks and a stocked-with-goodies holiday market inside the Lakewood Masonic Temple. 14701 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-521-0655, lakewoodalive.org
