Cedar Fairmount to hold Oct. 29 Halloween festival
Corn stalks, pumpkins, apples, the sound of crunching leaves—and ghosts, goblins and witches with brooms—are all signs that fall, and Halloween, is in the air. On Wednesday, Oct. 29, 5–7 p.m., the businesses of Cedar Fairmount will fill their stores with fall decorations and treats for young and old.
Children and adults are encouraged to come in costume, and there will be a costume contest for children at the India Community Center at 6 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for Most Original, Scariest and Funniest costumes.
Children (and goblins) will be able to play Halloween games, provided by members of the Cleveland Heights Church, at the India Community Center from 5–7 p.m.
Other activities taking place throughout the Cedar Fairmount district include appearances by a sketch artist and balloon clown Rita McCloskey, cupcake decorating at Luna Bakery Café, and a performance by The Wright-Reynolds Project—a group of Cleveland Heights musicians—at Buffalo Wild Wings. Trick-or-treaters will be welcome at all businesses that display pumpkin signs in their windows.
Restaurants will offer food specials beyond the 7 p.m. close of trick-of-treating, and the Freddy Cole Quartet will perform two shows at Nighttown, at 7 and 9 p.m.
The Cedar Fairmount Halloween/Fall Festival is sponsored by City Architecture Inc. and the Cedar Fairmount Special Improvement District.
Halloween will not be scary in the Cedar Fairmount district—it will be a fun time for all. For more information, call 216-791-3172 visit www.cedarfairmount.org.
Kaye Lowe is executive director of the Cedar Fairmount Special Improvement District.
