Columbus Days – October 2007

by Maureen McCabe on September 12, 2007

Columbus Day, the holiday is not on the poll.  In Columbus it becomes “Columbus Days”, or maybe it is “Experience Columbus Days” the first weekend in October.  Columbus day is not the most politically correct of holidays.  It’s not a national holiday (but neither are a couple of other holidays on the poll…)  Experience Columbus Days are October 05, 2007 thru October 08, 2007.

Who is participating in 2007 according to Experience Columbus?
“Beulah Park, CAPA, CATCO, the Columbus Blue Jackets, Columbus Children’s Theatre, Columbus Crew, the Columbus Historical Society, the Columbus Italian Festival, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, COSI Columbus, Franklin Park Conservatory, Historic Roscoe Village, Kelton House Museum and Garden, Magic Mountain Fun Centers, Mid Ohio Historical Museum, the Motorcycle Hall of Fame, the North Market, the Ohio Historical Center, Opera Columbus, the Santa Maria, Shadowbox, the Short North Arts District, Terror Park, The Ohio State University Department of Athletics, the Wexner Center for the Arts and the Wilds. ”

Special events and discounted admissions at area attractions is what I’ve experienced the last couple of years. is still showing 2006 info  but should be updated by mid September I believe. 

There’s no Columbus Day Parade in Columbus… but there is a lot to do. 

I believe the Italian Festival at St. John the Baptist Church in Italian Villages has been moved to coincide with Columbus Days this year.
