COLOMBUS DAY WEEKEND EVENTS! Friday, Saturday & Sunday
October 6, 7, 8, 2017

Bridgeport, CT

Two Free Marine Band Concerts, Parade and Street Festa on tap for Columbus Weekend!

The Columbus Day Parade is on Sunday October 8 stepping off at noon at Jewett and Wayne Streets in Bpt. As a committed Italian, I urge you to make a special effort to attend the parade so that, by sheer numbers alone, those who are trying to do away with the parade will see that they are in the minority and may back off their position.
BACIO will have a float in the parade.

Official Columbus Day Events:
109th Columbus Day Parade: Sunday, October 8th at 1:00 PM. Steps off from Wayne Street and Jewett Avenue in Bridgeport's North End. Proceeding South on Wayne Street to Madison Avenue, finishing at Micalizzi's Italian Ices and Ice Cream Shop, 712 Madison Avenue.

Columbus Street Festa: Sunday, October 8th (same day as the Parade) from 11:30 AM - 8:00 PM at Micalizzi's Italian Ices and Ice Cream Shop (712 Madison Avenue) and adjacent streets.

Two Free Marine Band Concerts: Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th.
Both Concerts start at 7:00 PM, with doors open to the public at 6:00 PM. The Concerts will be held at the Klein Memorial Auditorium, 910 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport. There is plenty of free parking at the Klein. The Concerts are free, but due to limited seating tickets are required. Tickets are available at Lupe's Drug Store in Bridgeport, 3129 Main Street. Call (203) 374-0600. Concert goers are asked to bring non-perishable food items to the Klein (night of the Concerts) for distribution to Veterans in need from the greater Bridgeport community.
