About The Event
The Puerto Rican Parade of Greater Cleveland carries a strong history of cultural awareness, pride, and education, led by a resilient community who’s love for their homeland, spirit of freedom, justice, and unity have never wavered. After over 50 years, when the Parade’s founders first celebrated their Puerto Rican heritage in the City of Cleveland, they proudly continue this legacy today. They welcome all groups interested in participating in the annual celebration to form contingents of walkers, floats, or vehicles so that all can share in the celebration of their Puerto Rican culture and heritage. This is an opportunity for organizations and groups to act in solidarity and in showing of a unified body while celebrating their community’s achievements and contributions to the Greater Cleveland area.
This year will be more exciting than ever with the inclusion of LGBTQ representation in the parade from the Latin Pride Project!
