The Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a tradition like no other. The only other day which holds so much meaning for the city is opening day of the baseball season. Since the baseball lockout has pushed opening day to April 15th for the newly minted Cleveland Guardians, the usual two weeks between events is now four and again, so much promise moving forward.
The images in the gallery below are only a small sliver of the joy March 17th brings every year. As you look through and see familiar faces and some new keep in mind that this is only a small representation of the family we know as IUEC Local 17.
