The 34th Annual Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade kicked off on Saturday, October 10, following its usual route along 18th Avenue (a.k.a. Cristoforo Colombo Boulevard). The family-friendly Bensonhurst favorite kicked off at 61st Street just past 1 p.m.
It ended at FIAO’s Italian-American community center, Il Centro near Benson Avenue.
This year’s grand marshals were Justice Patricia DiMango (star of CBS’s “Hot Bench”), Cavaliere Joseph Bova and Biagio Madaio (vice president and business development officer of Investors Bank).
