Columbus Day Parade

October 10, 2016

The world’s largest celebration of Italian-American heritage takes over Fifth Avenue on 10/10: New York’s annual Columbus Day Parade. This year’s Grand Marshal, Robert LaPenta, will lead the procession of 35,000 marchers representing more than 100 groups, from bands to floats, before nearly one million spectators. For the best views of performances, perch yourself between 67th and 69th streets. The parade is also televised, but all are welcome to join the throngs on Fifth Avenue and honor the spirit of exploration and courage that brought Christopher Columbus to the New World.
