Brick Township, NJ- The Ocean County Columbus Day Parade Committee regretfully announces the cancellation of the 29th Annual Ocean County Columbus Day Parade and Italian Festival due to financial shortfalls brought on by the Corona Virus Pandemic.
“We have been unable to conduct fundraisers or seek sponsors that normally provide the committee with the $120,000.00 plus dollars needed to support the three-day festival and parade. We had one fundraiser earlier in the year and held our Spring Raffle. The committee currently is selling our Fall Raffle Tickets and plan to sell all 100 Fall Raffle Tickets, so that we can give away the $5,000.00 cash prize.” stated Chairman Michael Blandina.
The Thirtieth Anniversary will take place next year on October 8, 9, and 10, 2021.
