One World Day schedule in 2013 expands dramatically in terms of performances, food, beverages, as well as the ever popular naturalization ceremony for immigrants. The main venues will be the Irish and African-American Gardens with many other Gardens have activities along East Blvd and MLK Jr. Drive. Program kicks off at 1 PM with the parade of nations from the Irish to African-American Gardens. At 2 PM the naturalization ceremony takes place in the African-American Garden. At 3 PM a series of performing groups and entertainers takes over in the African-American, Irish, Greek and Italian Gardens. Performances in the African-American and Irish Gardens will run until 9 PM, changing every 30-60 minutes. At 3:30 PM the Serbian Cultural Garden will have the dedication of the latest Serbian cultural figure’s bust and at 4 PM the Poles will do the same in their Garden. Hebrew, Hungarian, and Lithuanian Gardens will also host performances starting at 3 PM. Many Gardens will be selling ethnic food. And adjacent to the main stages you can buy food and beverages from food trucks.
The newest restored feature in the Lithuanian Cultural Garden are the balusters on their renown rail overlooking MLK from the East Blvd level. The stone rail is one of the finest examples in the Gardens, together with the Italian Garden’s similar rail. All of the Cultural Gardens are constantly undergoing restoration by the nationality group that sponsors each and every one of them which in turn has lead to increased visits and interest in the Gardens.
While the Lithuanian Cultural Garden has always had an impressive entrance, grand staircases, sign and other features on MLK Jr. Drive they have not had a flag and pole to call attention to their Garden on MLK. The Lithuanian Cultural Garden committee rectified that recently with the addition of a pole and Lithuanian flag. Thanks to the committee for their efforts as well as to the City of Cleveland’s Forestry department for pruning the trees around the pole so the flag can wave unfettered and in clear view.
