The Michigan Columbus Day Celebration....
six events each year...lifetimes
Here in Detroit, Columbus Day was celebrated from about 1896; the first official celebration recognized by local and state authorities was in 1909. Two organizations first organized the celebration: La Tribuna Italiana D’America (better known today as The Italian Tribune), our first issue was in May 1909, and the Knights of Columbus-Council No. 305. The original Editor of La Tribuna Italiana D’America, Vincenzo Giulano, initiated Columbus Day as a civic celebration in Detroit.
A small group of dedicated volunteers put together six events to celebrate Columbus Day and the Italian heritage in the Metro Detroit area The events are , A Queen contest, a Parade, 2 Masses, a Trip to Lansing and a banquet
