Columbus Day Parade (Revere)
The significance of Columbus Day in Revere is rooted
in the city's tradition as a destination for newcomers to our
shores. Many Italian, Irish, and Middle European immigrants settled
here, and the parade celebrates their spirit of adventure,
optimism, and courage in pursuit of a new life in a new world.
