After more than two years of construction, the Cleveland Convention Center(CCC) opens to the public on Saturday.
The estimated $465 million project was completed under budget and involved a complete makeover of Malls B and C and thousands of square feet under Lakeside.
In addition to the exhibition hall, the grand ballroom can seat about 1,800 people for dinner and also offers a floor-to-ceiling view of Lake Erie and First Energy Stadium. It will now compete with Columbus, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and even Charlotte for new business.
The ribbon cutting is scheduled for Friday, June 14, 2013, with Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, Senator Sherrod Brown and other dignitaries.
The public is invited to a “Celebrate the Center” open house on Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m for FREE. It will feature many family oriented events, food and Cleveland sports-related activities.
I heard on FOX 8 that all the Cleveland Sports Teams will be participating in this event. Some players will be present to sign autographs.
So if you want to see this beautiful new venue for FREE, go and check it out!
Happy Frrrreeeee Hunting!
