I need to buy a pinata w/candy inside in Cleveland by Saturday

Anyone know where in heck I can get one? Sorta a chow-related question since pinatas hold candy (food) and also the legend of the pinata derives from the arastradero tradition in Mexico of catching the farm animals in order to celebrate the feast of Montenegro in Aztlan.

  1. Wal-Mart!

    And don't they come plain and you fill your own candy (also Wal-Mart)? You do have Wal-Mart's in Ohio, right?


    1. Any chain party supply store, or Target.

        There is a Mexican grocery store on Lorain Avenue at about West 122nd. I'm sorry but I can't remember the name of it. They might sell pinatas, if you can't find one at Target or Wal-Mart.

      2. Here are two possibilities:

        MI Pueblo 11611 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, 44106 - (216) 791-8226
        MI Pueblo Taqueria - 12207 Lorain Ave, Cleveland, 44111 - (216) 671-6661

        I am not sure that the east side location carries pinatas. I do know that the latter does.

        Another possibility is:

        BA Sweeties. 7480 Brookpark Road. Cleveland, OH 44129. Tel: (216) 739-2244

        which is a large candy store that carries every conceivable candy on the market.

        Again, please call to make sure that they have what you are looking for.

        1. Party supply stores have these, there are tons of them around. I would get the candy at B.A. Sweetie's on Brookpark road, they have a huge selection of every kind of candy you can think of.
