Columbus Circle Annual Wreath Laying
When: Sunday, October 7, 10:00-10:30am
Where: Columbus Circle Monument
Even before the Columbus Day Parade became a New York City institution in 1929, Columbus Circle was the site of an annual wreath laying that commemorated Christopher Columbus’s historic voyage and the immigrants who followed his path over the centuries. Members of the Italian Benevolent Society and the Knights of Columbus marched to the monument in a brief pilgrimage that recalled the event that changed the course of world history.
Today, the wreath laying is held under the auspices of the National Council of Columbian Associations in Civil Service in conjunction with the Columbus Citizens Foundation. The wreath laying features brief remarks by representatives of the Italian and Italian-American communities of New York and a short band performance.
