Columbus Day parade

Chilly winds and the threat of rain could not keep an estimated 155,000 spectators from Chicago's 39th annual Columbus Day Parade. Leading the festivities are: (in front row from left) U.S. Rep. Marty Russo, Mayor Richard Daley, U.S. Rep. Frank Annunzio and Gov. Jim Edgar. Tribune archive photo
