Boston Columbus Day Parade
It always occurs on the Sunday before Columbus Day.
The parade celebrates Boston's Italian heritage, Christopher Columbus's expeditions to the Americas, and the commitment of Massachusetts military units to American freedom. Lots of local organizations, military corps, politicians, performers, and high school marching bands provide fun and entertainment.
In odd-numbered years (2017, 2019), the parade kicks off in Boston and winds through the North End's narrow streets - Atlantic Ave, Hanover Street, Cross Street. In even-numbered years (2016, 2018, 2020), the parade marches down Bennington Street in East Boston, starting at the Suffolk Downs parking lot and ending up at Maverick Square.
