What are the tours for Saturday August 10?
Beautiful morning for the Canal Basin Tour
Come on down to Playhouse Square tonight at 6 p.m. and meet in front of the Hanna Bldg. at 1422 Euclid Avenue for a fantastic evening of learning how the second largest theater district in the nation was created and almost torn down to become a parking lot. Stroll casually, meet some fabulous historic characters and end the evening under the glittering largest outdoor chandelier in the world for an hour and a half of learning about the best location in the nation, our beloved Cleveland.
"Linda Eastman" was fabulous, so knowledgeable and "acted" like she was her! Thank you
