CLEVELAND (WJW) — Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.

And in Cleveland that means celebrating with a corned beef sandwich, a stop at the downtown St. Patrick’s Day parade and, of course, a pint of Guinness or two (for those of legal age) all while wearing as much green as you own.

The 2024 Cleveland St. Patrick’s Day parade route is here

As you know. this year, the March 17 holiday is hitting on today…Sunday, which means festivities are sure to go strong all weekend long leading up to the main event.
