Cleveland Festival: The Bridge Project September 25 & 26, 2009


Come join the extension of the Ingenuity Festival this weekend at the lower level of the Detroit Superior Bridge, 2433 Superior Viaduct. Originally this lower level was used for Cleveland’s streetcars, but for these two days only it will house the Bridge Project, an Art/Music/Food/Party of the likes this city has never seen before!  The streetcar level is approximately one mile long and 50 feet wide and includes a series of nooks, crannies, tunnels, cisterns, archways and rooms that will be transformed by Ingenuity with art installations, exhibits and performances.

You will be able to see spectacular views of downtown, the Cuyahoga River, the Flats and Lake Erie. This event will open Friday, September 25, at 4 pm, close at midnight and will continue Saturday September 26, from noon to midnight. It will be free to the public and include arts and crafts vendors, food and beverage vendors (including beer and wine), buskers and solo performers positioned across the great span of the bridge.  The more complex installations and performances taking place at either end. Most exhibits and performances are family friendly and each night closes with a musical event.

    Is that a relatively new bridge Savannah? I haven't been to Cleveland in a long time but I don't remember that one. Looks like fun indeed!

    This looks like a delightful event. What do they do with the space otherwise?
