Italian-Americans celebrate leading up to Columbus Day
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Saturday night marked the second night of celebrations leading up to the Annual Columbus Day Parade.
Hundreds of Italian-Americans came together for an invitation-only dinner at the Waldorf Astoria to pay tribute to a time-honored tradition.
The Gala Dinner is as old as the parade itself - it dates back to 1929.
The event raises money for charities supporting Italian-American students.
You can watch the Columbus Day Parade starting Monday at noon on ABC7 and on 7online by clicking HERE. ---
