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.

Before the Parade the units gathered at Sterle's on East 55th. In this short video taken just before the 2017 Kurentovanje Parade stepped off in Cleveland a polka was played, we met the Prince and Princess of Kurentovanje and Pikachu from Pokemon danced a Polka!
