NEW HAVEN, Feb. 15, 2017 — With preparations underway for this year’s Greater New Haven Columbus Day Parade in West Haven, West Haven Mayor Edward M. O’Brien, right, accepts the traditional passing of the Italian flag from Hamden Mayor Curt B. Leng on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at the 2016 Heritage Dinner presented by the Columbus Day Committee of Greater New Haven at Anthony’s Ocean View, 450 Lighthouse Road. Hamden was slated to host last year’s Italian-American cultural event, but it was canceled due to rain. The 2017 Columbus Day parade, the largest of its kind in New England, steps off at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 8, along Campbell Avenue in West Haven. The two-hour parade, which rotates among six municipalities, was previously held in the city in 2011 and 2006. (Columbus Day Committee of Greater New Haven Photo/Paul Criscuolo)
