Cleveland Asian Festival

Ok All,

I will be at the Horseshoe Stage on Payne around Noon-and Ill be staying through til at least 1pm.  That covers the Open Ceremony, the Kwan Family Lion Dance and the Blooming Flower Hmong Dance.  Ill be working a somewhat beat up and yellowish Kent State Tshirt and looking like I dont have a care in the world. That my picture to your left-Be aware though I will NOT be wearing my clown nose, that is only for state dinners and other special occasions.

If you arrive later in the day my cell is[masked], feel free to text me-we have 40 some RSVPs and experience tells me that means we will have 20 some participants.  Take a look at the link to the schedule of acts and think about which ones you might want to see-Im assuming with three stages and 40+ RSVPs there should be enough people and interests that groups might break off.

 

So it's time to kick off the Festival season-and as with last year the first one up is the Asian Festival.  The performance schedule is up.  There are 4 places that offer exhibits/performances/entertainment.

3 Are listed here.

http://clevelandasianfestival.org/2013/performers/performance-schedule/

And a 4th stage will be erected to showcase fashions of the region from 1:30-4:00.

 

Will be meeting by the stage on the Payne Avenue side-the festival's opening ceremony will be on that stage from 12-12:15 quickly followed by a Chinese Lion Dance.

    I came back to look for you Nassim, but by that time people had started pairing off into groups and wandering off in search of food and different entertainment. Sorry, nice to meet you though.

    There's free parking at E. 24th Street and Payne Avenue in CSU lots (about two blocks from the main stage at E. 27th & Payne). Ace Taxi will be providing free shuttle bus service from the parking lots to E. 27th.

      Really? There are three lots at E. 24th & Payne Avenue. Two on the southeast corner north of the I-90 Exit ramp. and one on the southwest corner (entrance is off of the I-90 ramp on E. 24th Street if you're you're coming from the east side). From the West on I-90 Exit at Superior and turn left, and left onto E. 24th Street. The lots are just south of Payne Avenue but before the E. 24th freeway ramps.
