7/17: Puerto Rican Parade and Latino Festival

Posted By on Wed, Jul 15, 2009 at 8:00 AM

If you want to see and join in some colorful hoopla, head downtown for the 41st annual Puerto Rican Cultural Parade and Latino Festival. The three-day event — which overflowed neighborhood parks years ago — is in the Cleveland Municipal Parking lot across from Burke Lakefront Airport, which is big enough to handle all the ethnic food stands, vendors of Puerto Rican flags, T-shirts and other souvenirs, a big performance stage and rides. The parade, stepping off at noon Sunday from East 18th Street and Superior Avenue and proceeding to the festival site, is always spectacular. The festival runs from 5-midnight today, noon-midnight tomorrow and noon-10 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free; on-site parking is $3. Proceeds benefit the activities of the Julia De Burgos Center Cultural Arts Center (5209 Detroit Ave., 216.961.2970). Go to juliadeburgos.org/festparade.html for info. — Anastasia Pantsios
