Step off ahead of the Manhattan parade and join the festivities at the Christopher Columbus Day Parade on 18th Avenue on Oct. 7.

And just one grand marshal isn’t enough — this year’s grand marshals will be Councilman Mark Treyger; Deputy Inspector of the 62 Police Precinct Anthony Sanseverino; Nick Pesci, general manager of LaBella Market Place; and Frances Novella-Locurcio, principal of PS-IS 209.

The procession will have revelers travel 24 blocks down 18th Avenue between 60th and 84th streets.

Parade step-off [18th Avenue and 60th Street in Bensonhurst, (718) 259–2828; www.fiaobrooklyn.org/about/contact].
