A message from the Chairman of the North End Columbus Day Parade to be held in October 2015.
This parade was started back in the early 50’s by the V.F.W of our neighborhood. Every year they would celebrate their Italian American Heritage with a Grand Parade through this great North End neighborhood, our “little Italy”. Through the years, it has been passed down to younger generations in the hope that the tradition goes on. Every other year, we still put on the best parade that we can, but it gets tougher and tougher. Our committee does its best every year to raise funds because we want to keep tradition going.
We are now reaching out to everyone in need of help. Our goal is to successfully raise $20,000 to be able to put on the most entertaining parade our crowd can see. Our parade not only celebrates Italian-Americans, but we dedicate our whole first division towards our troops and invite many units and bands to march.
We need your help, please support this parade and help the tradition carry on. Traditions are very hard to come by these days, and we cannot let this one die.
