CLEvents: Dazzle the District (and a GIVEAWAY!)

I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz about how the Playhouse Square district is getting a very dazzling revamp, but in case you haven’t, here’s what’s happening & some of the newest additions to the area:

Back in October 2013, Playhouse Square announced the new project – which was to include new signage, a 1920’s style retro sign, and a record-breaking outdoor chandelier.

Now there are only 7 days left until the big #DazzleCLE celebration on May 2nd, which is when the GE Chandelier will be lit for the first time!


The Dazzle the District celebration will take place on Friday, May 2nd in the heart of the PlayhouseSquare neighborhood, on Euclid Avenue between East 13th and East 17th Streets, and on East 14th Street between Euclid and Prospect. Here’s the schedule for the night:

5:00 p.m. :: “Taste of PlayhouseSquare,” Happy hours & live music on Star Plaza
8:30 p.m. :: Hot Chelle Rae Concert on The University Hospitals Main Stage
9:30 p.m. :: Spectacle! Dazzle! Surprises? Lighting Ceremony

Yes, you read that right. HOT CHELLE RAE is coming! Oh, and did I mention this event is FREE?


PlayhouseSquare was already something us Clevelanders are immensely proud of – it being the 2nd largest theater district in the country (next to NYC) – but this revitalization is only going to make it that much more amazing, dazzling, spectacular! I love going to this area of downtown – there’s so much to do and see! I can’t wait to attend this event and see how this area has been dazzled! Don’t forget to follow PlayhouseSquare on Facebook and Twitter, and use the hashtag #DazzleCLE to join in the fun!
