You are Invited to March in the Columbus Day Italian Parade! Sunday, Oct. 11 at 1pm

Anything Columbus. Anything Italian. Anything Columbus-Italian!

It’s not just a parade. It’s a parade with a High School Marching Band Competition!

Seven, count them, seven area high school marching bands will compete for top honors and a giant trophy and a check! The bands will perform in marching form with a “stopped performance” on High Street between Buttles and Warren. Then, they’ll march on towards their final BIG performance under the main tent at the Columbus Italian Festival.

Car lovers will appreciate the many beautiful automobiles revving their powerful Italian and American engines as they
escort Italian and Columbus officials to the festival, including one of Columbus’s favorite: Columbus-Italian uomo di famiglia, Grand Marshal-Ohio House of Representative Michael Stinziano!

Want to have your own car float or marching group? We’d love it! Just please pre-register with us before October 9.

Santa will be here too! Will you? You don’t want to be in the bravado? Then come on out and cheer the bands and parade on!

Please let us know that you’d like to be in the Columbus Day Italian Parade. There is no entry fee, unless you’re a politician or a political activist group. Lineup is on Dennison Ave. Route: East on Buttles Ave. to High St., North on High St. to Warren Ave., East on Warren Ave. to Fourth St. Contact Deb Roberts at 614-228-1868 or email mzdoodah@yahoo.com
