"Celebrate Columbus" is Saturday, October 10th! The annual Columbus Day parade will start at 10 am at the north end of Franklin Avenue and continue down to Columbus Park. A delegation from Italy will march and a dedication ceremony will follow in the park. A monument is to be erected in the park dedicated to the sister city in Floridia. After the parade, the street will be re-opened for traffic and more fun will start.

From noon until 5pm, clowns will walk the Avenue giving away free balloons to the children, a strolling singer along with an accordion player will spend time in front of every restaurant and bakery, and a stage will be set up at 500 Franklin Avenue with entertainers. Many merchants will be offering specials that day and some have hired their own musical entertainers to play in front of their businesses. The newest business on the street, Gordon Bonetti Florist, will have its grand opening and the storefronts will be decorated to promote the festivities.

This one-day event is being sponsored by FAMA and BankBoston in an effort to bring patrons back to Franklin Avenue.

Please join us for the day! Bring your families and friends to the parade and stay for a while. The merchants on Franklin Avenue value your patronage and will welcome your visit.
