A lot of people are worried on social media but organizers say the show will go on!
Brite Winter Fest is scheduled for this weekend — Saturday, February 18 from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m. It usually gives Cleveland a way to embrace the cold in the bleak season with music, art, and live ice sculptures. But this year...it's warm!
Ice carvings will still be put up. But, given the 60-degree temperatures, they might not look perfect for long. So get there early!
Some of the best local and regional musicians will play into the night at various stages set up along the West Bank.
Aside from musical entertainment, there will be vendors, tents, and artists producing live art. Luminous Winter Luau will have ice carvings from 3-7 p.m. Food trucks and restaurants around the area will be open to feed the appetites of hungry attendees.
As the sun goes down, the lights come on. Northern KaLightoscope decorates the streets with colorful lights. Fire and light performers will come alive after sundown. Crooked River Huts are essential for keeping everyone warm throughout the night.
All events are free and open to the public.
