columbus day festival
CELEBRATE OUR RICH HISTORY, CULTURE AND
In many Cities in California including Sacramento, Columbus Day is also Italian American Heritage Day! This year they are both recognized on October 12, which is also the date Columbus discovered America.
Columbus Day is not only a national holiday but is a recognized holiday in many cities and states across the nation. When we celebrate Columbus Day we are celebrating the arrival of Western Civilization to the Western Hemisphere and our own arrival on these shores. The Columbus holiday has long been associated with Italian Americans as a symbol of their national pride and identity and their enormous contributions to America. The holiday is celebrated throughout Italian-America with parades and festivals. It is the one day of the year that Italian Americans across the nation celebrate their heritage together.
