Celebrate Columbus Day in Largo

This year Columbus Day is today- Monday, Oct. 8.

Columbus Day, a nationally recognized federal holiday, falls on Monday, Oct. 8 this year. While it is an opportunity for some to sleep in on a Monday, the holiday itself is also interesting, and a great time to celebrate and shop.

Columbus Day remembers Italian explorer Christopher Columbus’ long journey across the Atlantic Ocean to the “New World." The voyage was victorious when land was first spotted on Oct. 12, 1492.

The day is also considered a celebration of Italian heritage, as well as a huge shopping day in the U.S.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is responsible for making the holiday a federal one in 1937.

What is closed on Columbus Day? Most banks, federal government offices and the U.S. Postal Service will be closed to observe the holiday.

The City of Largo offices and services such as garbage collection are open and available as usual, said city spokesman Brandon Graham.
