A Great Parade

October 16, 2013
By

On Monday under perfect weather, Revere’s own Columbus Day Parade returned to our city streets.  From the Chelsea line on Broadway to past St. Anthony’s Church on Revere Street, the parade wound its way down this route for more than two hours as thousands watched those who took part in the parade from marching bands to local youth organizations to local elected officials.

The start of this truly great event began on Sunday where more than 500 people attended the kick-off breakfast.  We thank Mayor Dan Rizzo who provided the impetus for the return of this city event.   We also thank the following individuals and organization who contributed either time or capital or both for this parade:

    too long, not necessary and should have been on a Sunday. Why would you celebrate a man who accidently found Fla, and raped, pillaged and Killed so many Native Americans? please don’t repeat next year.
