Brite Winter Festival – Saturday, February 27, 2010, 5-10pm
Forecast: 30 F and snowy. Perfect for a winter festival
Join us as we celebrate winter in Cleveland (yes, you heard that right, we’re celebrating – take that Forbes!) at the Brite Winter Festival on Saturday from 5 – 10pm in the Flats!
Cleveland bands, Cleveland sponsors, Cleveland food, Cleveland Plays, Cleveland neighborhood and community groups, and Cleveland artists make this event, well, very Cleveland. And that’s a very good thing.
There is honestly too much being offered to go into in this short blurb, but here are the highlights:
Music: This Moment in Black History with the Uncanny Xe La and The Hot Rails.
Art: Lots of local artists displaying and creating all sorts of cool stuff, including a BlowUp PopUp Chill Dome. What is that, you ask?
Fire: Self-explanatory and totally necessary
Food: Warm drinks and eats from Gypsy Bean Coffee & Baking. Italian goodness and cheap booze from Sainato’s Restaurant.
Sporting fun: Cornhole organized by Cleveland Plays, giant skeeball, ice bocce ball, chalkboard graffiti, Bridge War snowball fight reenactment.
Stay warm and be cool in The Best Location in the Nation at Brite Winter Festival. Hope to see you there!
