University Circle Inc.
One of the signature events of summer in Northeast Ohio, the Cleveland Museum of Art's 30th annual Parade the Circle includes floats, dancers, live music, stilt-walkers, giant puppets, colorful costumes, vibrant characters, handmade masks and much more.

This year's parade theme is Mythology of Illusion. The parade begins at noon, but guests can enjoy hands-on activities offered by local organizations in Circle Village, in the field inside Wade Oval, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be a slew of tents offering free children's activities. Kids can play a musical instrument, learn about summer safety and the environment and do crafts. Find out more about the workshops right here.

For adults, there's a beer and wine garden. Local acts Cats on Holiday, Forecast and Faith & Whiskey will perform.

Admission is free. But do bring chairs or blankets and plan to arrive early: The spots with a view fill up fast.
