"In fourteen hundred ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.. He had three ships and left from Spain;
He sailed through sunshine, wind and rain. He sailed by night; he sailed by day; He used the stars to find his way.
A compass also helped him know - How to find the way to go.
The Worcester Columbus Day Parade Committee proudly celebrates the
21st Worcester Columbus Day Parade at 12:30 pm
beginning at the corner of Aitchison Street down Shrewsbury Street, in the
City of Worcester, Massachusetts
and ending at Washington Square near Union Station.
The Worcester Columbus Day Parade is an annual Italian tradition which delights the community
as well as the City of Worcester.
For the Italian American community, the Columbus Day Parade is a time to honor and celebrate our
