On October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue and found himself in the Americas. Today, better known as Columbus Day, we celebrate discovery and patriotism all over the country! Here at Sikara, we love fueling our own curiosity with traveling all around the world to discover new people, places, cultures and designs that ultimately become the inspiration for our wonderful pieces! Celebrate Columbus Day with Sikara’s patriotic cufflinks and some fun events listed below!
Boston: In Boston, Columbus Day is an official 3-day weekend filled with fun! If you’re in the area be sure to go to the Columbus Day Parade through the North End, the Cranberry Harvest Festival, and of course take out those wallets for some of the year’s best sales! You can even get in a workout with the Annual TUFTS 10K Columbus Day Race!
San Francisco: You’re more than lucky if you’re in San Fran for Columbus Day. Experience the nation’s oldest and best Italian Heritage Columbus Day Parade with music, food, and even some famous faces!
