Are you looking for a festive, family-friendly event to attend in Cleveland this holiday season? The City Auto Rental team suggests hopping in your rental car and checking out Winterfest 2017 on Saturday, November 25 at Public Square.
Winterfest is a free event which takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving and draws in over 50,000 people annually. The all-day event is crowned by the lighting of the Christmas tree and holiday light displays plus fantastic fireworks. Public Square is located in downtown Cleveland, easily accessible by car, and only 15 minutes away from our convenient location.
