Maneuvering the cars among the crowds and closed streets:
Parking can be a bit of hassle when coming to Tremont on any regular day, especially during a street festival. Avoid the stress by coming early and seeking out lots throughout Tremont offering paid parking. Most parking fees can range from $10-$20 for the whole day, so bring cash to pay the tenant. Street parking is available but don't count on it as the first option.

It's all about the food. Come hungry or not at all. With over 30 food vendors lining the main streets of Tremont, most restaurants serve sample size dishes so you keep eating throughout the day and come back after to choose your favorite stand.
Barrio's fusion tacos and Fahrenheit's crispy potato nachos topped with fondue, fresh herbs and bacon are fan favorites. Edison's New York style pizza will be available by the slice but expect a crowd because this Tremont hot spot is always crowded. Every year, Sokolowski's University Inn brings the authentic taste of Cleveland's Polish food by offering its perfectly buttered pierogis topped with caramelized onions.
