SCRIPT
Thousands gathered in the streets of New York City for the 75th annual Columbus Day parade on Monday, celebrating Christopher Columbus' discovery of the Americas and Italian-American culture in general.
Participants were seen dancing and waving Italian flags as marching bands and various floats were parading in the streets of the Big Apple.
Columbus Day, widely celebrated across North and South America, marks the day Christopher Columbus arrived in present-day Bahamas or Turks and Caicos on October 12, 1492. The holiday has become the target of increasing criticism in recent years due to Columbus' and other Europeans actions against indigenous populations.
