Renewal of the Columbus Day Festival on Federal Hill


This weekend brought us the renewal of the Columbus Day Festival on Providence’s Federal Hill. Sunday morning was the parade. Enjoy the photos. 

These men dressed like ancient soldiers.
The Pawtuxet Rangers had a strong presence at the parade. This one brandished his sword.
Ghostbusters burst onto the scene.
Fire trucks are always a huge part of any great parade. This one is no different.
Old vehicles are always a huge hit with the spectators. And why not?
A nice, blue fire truck.
The Pawtuxet Rangers Fife and Drum Corps!
Who ya gonna call on the day of a great parade? Ghostbusters!
Newer truck for an old group!
