The 42nd Annual Bronx Columbus Day Parade will once again honor one of the many teachers in the community who impact our children’s lives. When the Bronx Columbus Day Parade steps off at noon at the corner of Morris Park Avenue and White Plains Road on Sunday, October 7, several honorees, including Carl Vinci, a life-long educator from the borough, will be honored.

The parade, a celebration of community and Italian-American heritage, runs along Morris Park Avenue from White Plains to Williamsbridge roads. This year it honors Christopher Mastromano, Jacobi Medical Center executive director, as its grand marshal. The honorary grand marshal is a familiar face to the borough’s educational scene, as Carl Vinci tells the Bronx Times that up until last year he led the Project Boost program, an enrichment program that can be found in local public schools including P.S. 83, P.S. 89, P.S. 105 and P.S. 72.
