St. Patrick's Day Parade, Events, Transportation Guide

St. Patrick's Day is today and that means parade time in downtown Cleveland.

"It will come down Superior all the way down to East Road way," said Parade organizer Pat Murphy.

An estimated 300,000 people expected to line the parade route today.   

"Usually its a 1:00 PM start because of Sunday's 12:00 PM mass letting out late we start the parade at 2:00 PM.

The Cleveland Police have teamed up with our RTA and the Sheriff's office to make it as worry free as possible.

"We're keeping our finger on the pulse and always if you see something say something please inform us," said Commander Harold Patel. 

The parade route will be locked down about 15 minutes before the start of the 146th Cleveland St. Patrick's Day parade starts.

But take this good advice from Mary Shaffer of RTA, "Come early, come early, come early!"

The parade kicks off at 2:04pm and runs from East 18th Street and heads west on Superior Avenue.

PARADE ROUTE

The parade will begin at the intersection of Superior Ave. and East 18th St. It will travel southwest on Superior Ave. to East Roadway. The parade will head northwest on East Roadway for one block; and then it will head northeast on Rockwell Ave. The Parade ends at the intersection of Rockwell Ave. and East 6th St. [MAP]

According to RTA, last year's parade drew a record crowd of more than 500,000 people.

If you are looking for an easier way into downtown Cleveland, try RTA! As parade officials anticipate a long, well-stocked parade this year, RTA anticipates many additional riders.

At approximately 2:00pm, the south sidewalk of Superior Ave will be closed to Eastbound pedestrian traffic. Pedestrians will be directed around the Huntington Bank Building down Euclid Ave to gain access via East 6th Street to Superior Ave or they can cross to the northbound side of Superior Ave. Pedestrian traffic will be allowed to move westbound on Superior Ave toward Public Square.
