He may be one of the most famous failures in history, but 35,000 marchers and nearly 1 million spectators are expected along Fifth Avenue to mark the day when Christopher Columbus landed in the Americas and to celebrate the heritage of the Italian-American community. Sure, it isn’t New York’s glitziest parade, but where else can you catch the tarantella, a frenzied Italian folk dance? Fifth Ave from 44th St to 72nd St.

Sissy026, what was written here wasn't about you, and it wasn't even about your heritage. The whole of the Americas would have been much better off without marauding "explorers". Once people admit that, no one will ever have to worry about related political correctness. Lighten up!!!

I'm not reviewing the parade. But I came here for more information to see if I could make it there this weekend. I am of Italian-American decent and very, very proud of my heritage. That being said - I do not refer to myself as Italian-American for the mere fact that I am an American which I believe ALL nationalities in America should refer to themselves as. It is one thing to keep the culture of your family - however - we are all Americans first. Which brings me to the point I would like to make. I'm so sick and tired of the many nationalities in this big melting pot we call the United States crying and moaning over stupid things. But I am going to do the same thing today for my heritage! I absolutely resent the description of the parade by the writer of this page - "He {Columbus} may be one of the most famous failures in history" and -"Sure, it isn’t New York’s glitziest parade, etc, etc."} Why do you feel it is o.k. to degrade my heritage - especially in this day of "political correctness" when people become sacrificial lambs for saying just about anything!
