More than 200,000 people expected in & around downtown for festivals, Indians games

CLEVELAND - Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to be in and around downtown Cleveland for more than a dozen events and festivals this weekend.

"This is the place to be, go Tribe," said Ann Keagan, assistant director of communications for the Cleveland Indians. "It'll be fun here for the weekend. We look forward to having as many people as we can."

The Indians play against the Astros at Progressive Field Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday as the team inches closer to the playoffs. Promotional events accompany each game with one dollar hot dogs Friday, fireworks Saturday and Key Bank kids' fun day Sunday.

"If you come here, you're going to see something that you like," said James Krouse, artistic director of Ingenuity Cleveland.

The ninth annual IngenuityFest kicks off this weekend at dock 32 behind FirstEnergy Stadium. The festival celebrates art and technology with more than 300 exhibits.

"We have artists that are coming in with pieces that are 80 feet long, 60 feet long, really ambitious projects," Krouse said.

Blow-up amphitheaters, neon murals and livable shipping containers decorate the warehouse.
