Columbus Day Parade held in Bridgeport with COVID-19 restrictions

The Columbus Day Parade was held in Bridgeport with a scaled back event to protect the public from COVID-19.
The procession went through the city's North End with only one float. Organizers say that the scope of the event was reduced due to the pandemic, but they never thought of canceling it in spite of all the controversy surrounding Christopher Columbus and his place in history.
The parade, sponsored by the Council of Italian-American Societies of Greater Bridgeport, started on Jewett Avenue and ended at Micalizzi Italian Ice on Madison Avenue.
Others will be observing Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday.
