St. Patrick's Day Parade

When: Fri., March 17 2017

The first Cleveland St. Patrick's Day parade reportedly took place in 1867. In the early years, the parade marched through the near westside (from the Flats to Detroit-Shoreway) where the region's Irish immigrants were concentrated. The songs and dancing were organized by the Order of the Hibernians. Back in 1910, State Sen. Dan Mooney introduced a bill which recognized St. Patrick's Day in Ohio, turning the parade into a true tradition. The parade launches at 1:04 p.m. at the intersection of Superior Ave. and East 18th St. It then heads southwest on Superior Ave. to East Third St. Expect downtown bars to be jammed before it begins and after it's over.
