For its third edition this past Saturday, the Brite Winter Festival moved a few blocks — from its former riverside location in the Flats to Ohio City. Festivalgoers huddled around three bonfires in a parking lot at Bridge and West 26th, while bands played from 5-10 p.m. on the outdoor stage there. Hundreds of hardy Clevelanders braved the cold to listen to Tom Evanchuck & the Old Money, Lighthouse & the Whaler, Bad Veins, Black Taxi, and Bethesda shiver as they played. Bethesda vocalist Shanna Delaney brightened the dreary day not only with her sparkling vocals but with her bright red coat and yellow gloves. Given the bitter cold, many music lovers appreciated the eight nearby businesses that also featured music — indoors. The festival also featured games, art, and food trucks. — Anastasia Pantsios
