The annual horse show to benefit St. Paul's Church on Cleveland's
near West Side has gone to the dogs. What began 30 years ago as the brainchild
of the Friends of St. Paul's has been transformed into a Spring Family Festival
held Sunday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Metroparks Polo Field (Route
87 and River Road).
There will still be horses (actually ponies), but this time,
kids get to ride them. Children will also enjoy games, the St. Ignatius Circus,
a puppet show by the Madcap Puppet Theater, a magician, clowns and face painting.
Canine University of Bedford Heights will present several dog events, from agility
to freestyle, throughout the day. And the stars of the "Max & Annie" book
series, English springer spaniels Max, Annie and Tac, will also make an appearance.
The entire family will enjoy food, musicCand fun. Admission is $5 for adults
and $2 for kids 12 and under. Cleveland Magazine is a sponsor of the event.
