The 5th annual Cleveland version of the most popular carnival in Slovenia - Kurentovanje - began with a parade. See video and photos from the 2017 Kurentovanje Parade in Cleveland.
After the Parade, the people gathered at the Slovenian National Home for music, dance, food and more. The Folklorna Skupina Kres was established in 1954 and the current group of Kres Slovenian Folklore Dancers performed at the Festival.
