The Federation of Italian-American Organizations of Queens’ 42nd Annual Queens Columbus Day Parade marched in Astoria last Saturday. The crowd went from Kaufman Studios to the Columbus Triangle.

Above, the FIAOQ contingent marches.

In the top row of the center column, members of the NYPD hold flags at the parade.

Below them, Deputy Italian Consul Irene Asquini and Parade Chairman and emcee Judge Jerry Iannece wave for the camera.

On the right, a group from the Lt. Det. Joseph Petrosino Association in America marches.

The group is named after an early 20th century NYPD officer who established the bomb, undercover and canine squads, according to its website.

Welcome to the discussion.
