The city is sponsoring a Columbus Day parade on Sunday but participation is by invitation only. Because of the pandemic, the Council of Italian American Societies of Greater Bridgeport Inc. is holding its 112th Bridgeport Columbus Day Parade in a modified form.

The celebration of Columbus will take place in five events, including invitation only car parades, a flag-raising, a wreath-laying and a virtual concert. Face masks and social distancing is required and will be enforced, organizers said. Festivities kick off at 11 a.m. Oct. 10 with a ceremonial raising of the Italian flag at Circolo Sportivo Italo Americanco Club in Bridgeport, 2500 Park Ave.
