‘Italian pride day’ in the North End


Italian-Americans waved the tricolor flag from the old country as a celebration of their heritage during yesterday’s Columbus Day Parade.

“It is Italian pride day,” said Frank Abrano, 79, of the North End. “I feel pride today.”

Abrano, a Vietnam veteran who served in the Navy, said he loves taking in sights at the 
parade year after year.

“I’m out today, I’m enjoying it,” Abrano said. “It’s appreciation day for veterans, for everybody, but mainly for Italians.”
