Shopping local for the holidays --- the final stretch!

It seems like we've been on the "shop local for the holidays" train for so long, we're still two weeks away from Christmas! Which, depending on how much shopping and/or preparing you have done so far is either a good thing or a not so great thing. Either way, we have two new holiday shopping events for you going on in the CLE this weekend to finish off that list or get you started, better late than never.

Coventry Village Holiday Festival
Saturday, Dec. 14
Coventry Road, Cleveland Heights
If you've never enjoyed a nice afternoon or evening in Coventry Village, now's your chance to go all out! Attendees receive a special discount card for all the great local businesses in the area PLUS free parking at any public meter located in the garage, lots and street meters! But that's not all...get ready to get your holiday cheer on with music, community caroling, crafting, photos with Coventry Claus and Mr. Jingeling, an Elf movie marathon, AND an Ugly Sweater Bar Crawl!
