It seemed more like August than October as the temperature soared during the annual Columbus Day Parade in Little Italy.
The day began with Mass at Holy Rosary Church which featured the combined choirs of the four historically Italian Cleveland area churches - Holy Rosary, Holy Redeemer, St. Rocco and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
The 55th annual Columbus Day Parade kicked off a little after noon from Murray Hill and featured over 100 units and a dozen marching bands.
Parade Grand Marshall Bob DiBiasio missed the Cleveland Indian's trip to New York in order to lead the parade.
