Eastchester celebrates Columbus DayPosted: Updated:
People across the Hudson Valley are celebrating Columbus Day.
In Eastchester, hundreds gathered at the Lake Isle Country Club for fun activities.
For nearly half a century, Eastchester has held a Columbus Day fair and parade to celebrate the Italian explorer. "October is for the Italians. March is for the Irish. We try and figure out everybody else in between and we love being able to celebrate everybody's shared heritage," says Stuart Rabin, of the Eastchester Columbus Day Committee.
The festival will continue today at 1 p.m.
