Holiday magic returns to University Circle again this year.

CLEVELAND — The holiday season is upon us!

University Circle is ready to celebrate the Christmas season with their annual Holiday CircleFest next month on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 1-7 p.m.

"For 26 years, we've had friends and neighbors from around the region make Holiday CircleFest a special part of their holiday plans," said Chris Ronayne, president of University Circle Inc. "We invite the community to visit us again in the spirit of the season!"

New in 2019, guests to the event can prepay for parking at the University Circle Ford Road Garage using the Parkmobile app for $9.

“Many of University Circle's museums, schools, churches and nonprofit organizations open their doors for an unforgettable day of activities, make-and-take crafts, music and dance performances, and shopping,” organizers said in a press release.

Most activities run from 1-5:30 p.m.
