The Playhouse Square chandelier is the most famous symbol of Playhouse Square today. It was first lit on May 2, 2014 in a grand celebration that included live performances, a marching band and fireworks, lots of fireworks!
The Playhouse Square chandelier is the largest outdoor chandelier in the world. It is made up of 4,200 crystals. It took about a year to construct. It proudly hangs on Euclid Ave at E. 14th St. suspended by a 44 foot steel structure. It has been designed to survive the winters and wind here in Cleveland and require minimal maintenance. It is also very cost efficient; it’s annual electric bill is less than $1,000 as it uses LED lights and a timer. It comes on an hour prior to sunset and stays lit until one hour after sunrise.
