The Goodtime III has a great deal of history with its origins starting in 1924. As the organization grew and evolved, we now see our permanent neighbor harbored in the bay off Voinovich Park, behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Each year, Cleveland Pride’s annual celebration works side-by-side with the Goodtime III operators, ensuring festival goers and Goodtime III passengers each have safe passage to their intended destination.
This year, the Goodtime III was able to offer an alternative location for our festival goers by opening up the Goodtime III for music fun and enjoyment. In turn, the Goodtime III team have made arrangements to present Cleveland Pride with a donation to support our important celebration.
Captain Rick Fryan shared that they embrace our community and show their support as they “we’re fortunate enough to be on the Cover of the LGBT Visitors Guide put out by Positively Cleveland a year ago or so.” Captain Fryan continued “I truly believe we were selected because of our long-standing relationship with G.I.F.T. and M.I.S.T.”
“I have now had an opportunity to work with the Goodtime III team for the last four years,” shared Todd Saporito/Board President & CEO of Cleveland Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Pride, Inc. “The entire team has been spectacular hosts and dock neighbors as we build out the facility over two days, before festival day. They have even opened up their offices to help us at times as we begin to put together the overall campus. Partners and Allies like Goodtime III are role models on how corporate community neighbors can come together to accomplish similar goals: SHOW CASING CLEVELAND’S BEST.”
As Cleveland Pride continues to expand its programming and participation levels, we will be looking closely to see what projects we can develop with the Goodtime III team to bring more people to see Cleveland’s best.
