Providence Mayoral Candidates attend Columbus Day Festival

 By Mike LaCrosse

Thousands of people are heading to Federal Hill over the holiday weekend for the Columbus Day Festival and the mayoral candidates are taking advantage of the crowds.

Democrat Jorge Eloza, Republican Dr. Dan Harrop and Independent Buddy Cianci all made stops throughout the weekend.

“I’m working every single day out there meeting people putting out policy papers doing the things you have to do to win a campaign,” said Cianci.

“There are only three weeks left in the elections, we’re making sure we’re trying to be everywhere we can be,” said Eloza.

The festival continues on Atwells Ave. from 11 am to 8 pm.

Voters head to the polls on November 4th.
