Lucky Tucker

Four Leaf CloverHappy St. Patrick's Day!

Cleveland has a rich history surrounding St. Patrick's Day. The first St. Patrick's Day parade in Cleveland was in 1842. The theme of the parade this year is Prominent Irish Pioneers of the 20th Century. The 2018 parade is scheduled on Saturday, March 17 at 1:04pm. Being on a Saturday, it is sure to be a well attended parade. Before heading downtown you can read Lucky Tucker written and illustrated by Leslie McGuirk.


Lucky Tucker follows a cute dog as he makes his way through the day on St. Patrick's Day.  Tucker wakes up and feels he is having bad luck.  As the day goes on, Tucker's luck changes.  By the end of the day Tucker realizes he has good luck and a good day.
