Spend Your Holidays at Playhouse Square

The holiday season is just around the corner and Playhouse Square is the perfect destination for holiday fun. There are plenty of ways to celebrate in the Playhouse Square District - shows, decorations and more. There’s something for everyone! Check out some of our favorites below:

Holidazzle presented by U.S. Bank

Holidazzle is Playhouse Square’s free family open house! $5 parking is available at the Middough Parking Lot on the corner of E. 13th Street and Chester Avenue, first come first served. 

Enjoy a special kids buffet at the Ghost Light Restaurant and Lounge located in Crowne Plaza at 11:30 a.m. Then, head to the Idea Center located at 1375 Euclid Avenue for face painting and balloon artists and the sounds of the season played by a classical quartet. Snap a pic in the photo booth sponsored by WOW!, create crafts brought to you by U.S. Bank and Meijer and watch PBS cartoons presented by ideastream. Continue the fun by catching the free trolley to Public Square for Winterfest!

Photo ops on U.S. Bank Plaza
Visit U.S. Bank Plaza this winter to see the ornament all lit up for the holidays! It is the perfect photo opportunity for friends, family and even selfies! The ornament will light up on November 30, so make sure to stop and see it before it’s gone.
