It was beautiful, sunny and warmish outside today so I walked down to Superior Ave. on my lunchbreak to check out Cleveland’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It started at 1pm and went to 4pm, so I only got to catch a few glimpses of it. But for the short time I was down there, it was a fun time. Here are a couple of pictures I took with my phone.
For anyone unfamiliar with Cleveland’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, it started back in 1867, and this year marked the city’s 143rd parade and the biggest one yet. It’s the largest parade in Ohio and one of the larger ones in the country. The route runs down Superior Ave. from E. 18th to Public Square, so if you’re downtown for work or to have some fun on St. Patrick’s Day, definitely stop by.
Of course, if you were working today and didn’t have a chance to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the parade, there’s a whole day – and night – of festivities. From downtown to the east- and west-sides, activities abound and a guide can be found at www.cleveland.com/st-patricks-day
