DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –Cleveland parade organizers are expect a crowd of between 200,000 and 300,000 Tuesday for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Cleveland.
That’s an average-sized crowd considering the parade falls on a weekday and the weather is expect to be a little chilly.
It was 2012 when the parade fell on a Saturday, with great weather. That crowd was estimated at 500,000.
We spoke with Cleveland police who say they’ve received no threats to this year’s festivities, but they say they are ready.
“We do sweeps in advance for things like explosives or anything that could be dangerous,” says Detective Jennifer Ciaccia. “See something,
say something is always something we encourage during parades and large scale events.”
