Princess and Prince of Kurentovanje The 4th annual Cleveland version of the most popular carnival in Slovenia - Kurentovanje - began with a parade. The units gathered at Sterle's on East 55th and marched up St Clair to the Slovenian National Home.
Kurentovanje is a cultural event which connects ethnology, culture, arts, and people from all over Europe. It has been celebrated in Slovenia for the past 50 years. The central figure of the carnival, the Kurent, is believed to chase away winter and usher in spring with its supernatural powers. Kurentovanje has a Mardi Gras feel so many participants wore masks to help scare away winter.

Men with Black Bags and My New Year ResolutionThere were many folks who came to our door on Newton Avenue. There was the Fuller Brush man, who managed to sell Great Grandma some combs. There was the Mailman, and we knew him by his whistling up the porch steps. I had a small crush on the Cleveland Press paper boy, but I wound up marrying the Shopping News boy.

GE Nela Park Christmas Light Display 2015
Many of you may remember driving through the GE Nela Park campus on Noble Road in East Cleveland as a kid and being mesmerized by the amazing Christmas lighting display. While you haven't been able to drive through Nela Park for many years you can see the brilliant display along Noble Road. If you drive, be prepared for cars moving very slowly - and even stopping - as they ooh and aahh at the display. A better option is to pull into the Nela Park main road and park in one of the Visitor spots and walk along the display route.
It is another Cleveland treasure and should be visited in person. View some photos of the 2015 display to whet your appetite.
Note the Chandelier in this Playhouse Square tribute
