The Foundation for Hungarians in Cleveland and the Hungarian Scout Folk Ensemble in Cleveland jointly organized the winter funeral, carnival funeral or, in other words, the expulsion of mardi gras, according to Hungarian traditions. On February 19, 2023, after the St. Emeric Church Mass on Sunday, the event took place in the circular parking lot in front of the church.
The organizations would like to preserve this almost forgotten folk custom, to make it a regular occurrence, so that it can be preserved for future generations. To nurture and perpetuate our rich Hungarian folk traditions, the aspirations of the organizations are born and realized in this spirit.
