CLEVELAND- Cleveland's St. Patrick's Day Parade started at 1:04 p.m. Tuesday to crowds who braved chilly temperatures.
Stretching down Superior Avenue from East 18th Street, construction on Public Square forced this year's parade to take a slightly different route, curving onto Rockwell Avenue.
Full of bagpipes and Irish dancers, roughly 10,000 people participated. Though filled with tradition, the parade also featured law-enforcement supporters from the Sea of Blue and a group promoting a vegan-friendly diet from the Vegan Project of Lake County.
The Irish Setter Club of Ohio, Irish Wolfhounds of Northeast Ohio and the Cleveland Metroparks Mounted Unit were favorites among small children, while older observers cheered for Great Lakes Brewing Company.
