New York City's Annual Columbus Day Parade Returns After COVID-19 Hiatus

The annual Columbus Day parade marched up New York City’s 5th Avenue on October 11, returning after last year’s cancellation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

2021 marked the 77th anniversary of the parade, which organizers, the Columbus Citizens Foundation, called the “largest celebration of Italian heritage in the world.”
