CLEVELAND: The Hispanic Police Officers Association, Julia de Burgos Cultural Arts Center, others co-hosted the 50th Annual Puerto Rican Parade celebration on August 5th, 2018, starting at noon, at West 16th and Clark Avenues.

 

This year’s Grand Marshal was community activist Michael Ferrer of Lorain. Michael is currently Advocacy Chair & Trustee for the Coalition on Hispanic/Latino Issues & Progress (CHIP), working to ensure that Latinos receive fair and equitable treatment in the workplace, schools, and the community at large.

 

July 25th is Puerto Rico’s Constitution Day.  

 

Following the Parade was a ceremony at Roberto Clemente Park, 3690 Seymour Ave., Cleveland, presenting this year's Grand Marshal, Padrino, Madrina, and Queen. There was also a Community Fair featuring food, resources for those displaced by Hurricane María, activities for children (face painting), Safety/Community activities, and vendors ready to offer attendees additional resources and incentives.
