Columbus Day is October 8

Columbus Day is a federal and international holiday that commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Americas on October 12, 1492. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until the 1937. Since 1971, Columbus Day has been observed on the second Monday in October. For many, the holiday is a way of both honoring Columbus' achievements and celebrating Italian-American heritage. Throughout its history, Columbus Day and the man who inspired it have generated controversy, and many alternatives to the holiday have appeared in recent years. Click here for more information.

Chicago's Columbus Day Parade starts at 12:30 on Monday, traveling on Columbus Drive from Balbo to Monroe.
