Columbus Citizens Foundation Presents: The Art of Being Italian

2015 Parade Tops Ratings

Posted in: Culture, News, None, None | comments

On October 12, thousands of spectators lined the parade route along Fifth Avenue to see the most impressive Columbus Day Parade yet!

The parade was once again hosted by our Member, Maria Bartiromo, and Joe Piscopo, and featured popular musical performances by Il Volo (above) and Nick Tangorra (below).

As described in a letter from WABC President, Dave Davis, to the Foundation, this year’s parade was the largest celebration of Italian American pride with more than 490,000 people watching on Channel 7, attracting more viewers than anything else on television between noon and 3.

Thank you again to Parade Chairman, Alfred Catalanotto!
