Each year the Ocean County Columbus Day Parade Committee has brought in folk dancers and musicians from all over Italy to perform at the annual parade. And each year they have brought these groups to Mancini Hall to perform gratis for the community.

This year the committee showcased “Lo Zampognaro. Lagaro” from Pomarolo (Trento) Trentino Alto Adige Friday Oct. 11 at noon.

The Polizia di Stato (State Police, Italy) was the Posting Honor Guard and the 4th Degree Knight of Columbus, John D. McMahon Assembly provided the Posting Arch.

This year’s Parade Grand Marshal was Paul Barlo.

Freeholder Joseph H. Vicari presented the performers with a proclamation from the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders honoring them for their performances.

The group has more than 30 members (singers, dancers and musicians) who are brought together by the same love and interest for their traditional culture.

The name “Zampognaro” is derived from the musician who plays the zampogna (the bagpipe) and “Lagaro” is an inhabitant of the Vallagarina, crossed by the river Adige.  Their songs express words and scenes of hardworking people, their joys, their loves, and their friendships.
