Hillary Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine will speak at a Labor Day celebration on Cleveland’s east side Monday afternoon.
The event at Luke Easter Park — on the corner of East 99th Street and Ramona Boulevard — is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. following the 11th Congressional District Community Caucus Labor Day Parade.
The annual Labor Day event was started 45 years ago by the late U.S. Rep. Louis Stokes, according to Advance Ohio, and serves as the traditional launch of the general election campaign season.
