One of Revere’s longest-standing traditions, the Columbus Day Parade, returns on Monday, Oct. 14, at 1 p.m. The parade, which alternates annually between Revere and East Boston, celebrates the region’s Italian-American heritage. The parade begins on the south end of Broadway at the Chelsea line and marches up Broadway, continues along Revere Street, and ends at Saint Anthonys Church.
Grand Marshall Mayor Brian Arrigo will lead this year’s parade, which will feature dozens of marching bands, performers, vintage cars, floats, and local organizations.
We encourage residents of all ages to come enjoy this beloved community event,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “We look forward to a fun, festive day celebrating our city’s rich heritage through an exciting line-up of entertainment.”
The parade committee includes Honorary Parade Producer, Albert ‘Buddy’ Mangini of East Boston, and chairpersons Linda DeMaio of Mayor Arrigo’s office, City of Revere Veteran Service Officer Marc Silvestri, and Revere Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Wendy Millar-Page.
