2018 Puerto Rican Parade in Cleveland

50th Annual Puerto Rican Parade
West 16th and Clark Ave to Roberto Clemente Park
August 5, 2018

According to the Cleveland Puerto Rican Parade website "A parade celebration of Puerto Rican arts and culture has been observed by Cleveland's Puerto Ricans each summer since the late 60s. Its purpose has been to bring together the city's residents and to educate the community-at-large about the rich Puerto Rican culture. As we celebrate 50 years of history, we welcome the next organizers, Hispanic Police Officers' Association, and look forward to a gleaming future for this 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 waivered. After 50 years, when the Parade's founders first celebrated their Puerto Rican heritage in the City of Cleveland, we proudly continue this legacy."

The 2018 Honorees were:

  • Michael Ferrer, Grand Marshall
  • Ivan "Papo" Ruiz, Padrino
  • Selina Pagan, Madrina
  • Nayeli Claudio, Miss Puerto Rico Image 2018
The Hispanic Police Officers Association with Julia de Burgos Cultural Arts Center produced the 50th Annual Puerto Rican Parade celebration in the city of Cleveland.
