After you spend all day Saturday saluting planes and hanging out in the marina you might just need to find a calmer way to celebrate our fair city on Sunday. The 143rd Italian Heritage Parade on Sunday October 9th should prove to be a great way to spend your fleet week Sunday. With a myriad of floats and vendors to keep you entertained and fed how can you resist. The parade actually registers as San Francisco’s oldest civic event. I mean if an event has been going on for 143 years they have to be doing something right.
You’ll get to see the usual fun stuff parades bring all with a distinctly Italian twist. Handmade floats, performances by local musicians and maybe if you’re lucky you might get to catch a glimpse of good old Christopher Columbus himself. I know on Sunday it might be tempting to sleep off that Budweiser hangover but do your best to make it out to North Beach to enjoy a true San Francisco tradition.
