The Columbus Day Parade took place on Monday, October 8, 2012, and AsianInNY was invited by the President of International Columbia Association Mr. Vincent A. Tummino to walk the parade with his organization. It was a wonderful experience and we are there to support the path to true “Inter-Cultural Alliance”!
