High energy: Excitement grows as the creative team readies for Parade the Circle

The Cleveland Museum of Art’s 32nd annual Parade the Circle is just days away—on Saturday, June 8—and the parade tent at East Bell Commons on East Boulevard and Bellflower Road in University Circle is buzzing with activity.

Under the guidance of lead artist Héctor Castellanos Lara, artists, volunteers, and parade participants are putting the final touches on the costumes, puppets, and floats that will convey this year’s theme of “Visions of Harmony.”

Check out these photos of the creations currently undergoing last minutes adornents and accents in the tent, and head down to University Circle this weekend for the fun at the parade, University Circle Inc.’s Circle Village  on Wade Oval, food trucks, and live music!

All varieties of fun and entertainment run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. in University Circle:
