Annual Greek Parade held in Warren

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — A portion of downtown Warren was closed off Sunday for the 14th Annual Greek Parade.

The parade kicked off at noon at St. Demetrios Church on High Street and ended at City Hall.

St. Demetrios Church organizes the event each year.

The parade commemorates 193 years of the liberation of the Greek people from the Turkish regime.

The Greek Independence Day is the only foreign country independence officially honored in the U.S.

“The parade was nice. I walked, and it was really nice. It was awesome. Just to walk and to understand,” said Warren resident John Winfrey.

About 400 people came out for this year’s parade.
