Fall is a busy time for community events in Revere! RTV tries to make it to as many as possible. The events from this past weekend include the Italian Flag Raising Ceremony at City Hall and Barktober Fest. The Italian Flag Raising Ceremony is one of many events or commemorations set up by Revere residents of a particular culture. No matter what culture is being celebrated, the events are an open invitation. This ceremony aired live on Friday at noon on the RTV Community Channel and social media accounts. It is now replaying on television and posted online to watch at any time.
Barktober Fest is a fall festival for all of our local pups and owners! It is definitely a fan favorite for RTV coverage every year. Dog owners are encouraged to dress up their pets and participate in competitions. It is always a fun-filled event for both dogs and humans. Watch the sights and sounds of Barktober Fest posted to all RTV social media accounts and now playing in between programming on the RevereTV Community Channel.
Monday was Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and RevereTV is currently airing an informational program about the meaning of this day on the Community Channel. Assistant Superintendent of Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Lourenço Garcia, moderated this forum, which featured some Revere High School teachers and students and Strong Oak Lefebvre – the executive director and founder of the Visioning B.E.A.R. Circle Intertribal Coalition (VBCIC) and a member of the Ko’asek traditional band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation of New Hampshire. Tune in to the RevereTV Community Channel to watch this program.
