One of Cleveland’s beloved Labor Day traditions is the 11th Congressional District Parade & Festival, started in 1971 by the late Congressman Louis Stokes and carried on by his successors, Stephanie Tubbs Jones and now Marcia Fudge, who will serve as grand marshall for the 46th annual parade whose theme is “Empowering Our People,” whatever that means as long as Donald Trump is in the White House.
The lengthy parade will wends its way down Kinsman Avenue from E. 146th, packed with marching bands, drill teams, union delegations, fraternal groups, city agencies, politicians and more. It ends up in Luke Easter Park, where Fudge and friends will be on the reviewing stand and you’ll find vendors, food, games, music and lots of judicial candidates eager to shake your hand.
It’s free and open to all whether you live in the 11th district or not.
