The Puerto Rican Parade provides an opportunity to recognize individuals that have made a significant contribution to our community’s spirit, quality of life, are role models and have successfully demonstrated outstanding leadership. The purpose of selecting a Grand Marshal, Madrina, and Padrino of the Puerto Rican Parade is to recognize outstanding and special contributions made to the City of Cleveland and its surrounding areas.The selection of the candidates will be made only after a vote by the Puerto Rican Parade Task Force. The task force will also award young Latinos who have dedicated themselves to utilizing their talents and who have committed themselves to helping others or who have overcome obstacles to accomplish their goals.
