Hungarian Cultural Garden
70th Anniversary Rededication
August 24, 2008

The Hungarian Cultural Garden was formally dedicated on July 10, 1938. A colorful parade of some 5,000 members of Hungarian organizations, many of them in native costumes, marched along lower East Blvd. to the speaker stands at the lower end of the Hungarian garden. There, a crowd of 20,000 people awaited them.

On August 24, 2008 the Cleveland Hungarian community again gathered to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Garden. The event began with Endre Cseh Check II playing the cimbalom.
