Columbus Day Parade

Join East Boston on Sunday, October 9th for a festive parade celebrating Columbus Day!

The parade on Sunday, October 9th 2016 begins at the Suffolk Downs parking lot in East Boston and marches up Bennington Street, ending in Maverick Square near the waterfront.

Marching bands, vintage cars, performers, and floats make this parade a fun celebration of Italian heritage and has been an annual event since 1937. Each year it switches off neighborhoods, between the North End (odd years) and East Boston (even years).
