PARADES | MARCHES
Images of annual parades and general marches involving groups and people.
(February 5, 2017) Finished off the weekend attending the 18th Annual Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade & Festival. The experience was comfortable and visually regenerative as wave after wave of celebration made its way through of the streets of NYC’s Chinatown. This is an annual celebration that should experienced by every New Yorker, at least once.
(January 6, 2017) Three Kings Day observances in East Harlem kicked off with El Museo’s annual parade. This year’s event celebrated “the parade’s long trajectory history and roots by honoring individuals who have made significant contributions to the Latino community.”
(May 15, 2016) The 45th Annual Bronx Week grand finale proved to be a challenge for the thousands that came out and endured the weather. The 11-day celebration of the borough came to its climax with a parade, food & arts festival and music concert on Mosholu Parkway.
(January 6, 2016) After having to miss on a VIP pass to watch the ball drop at Times Square, I was finally able to venture out and shoot my first ever Three Kings Day Parade in New York City. Though the weather was somewhat cold, it was definitely a huge improvement from last year’s snowy scene.
(May 17, 2015) Just a few snaps of the 2015 Bronx Week Parade held along Mosholu Parkway and at the Food Festival where Jose “El Canario” Alberto and his Band were featured on the mainstage.
(October 31, 2014) Another great year for the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. This year’s theme was Garden of Earthly Delights and featured Whoopi Goldberg as Parade Grand Marshal. The streets were lined with people and the weather was kind. Though much tamer than in previous years, the visual spectacle was there, nonetheless. Happy Halloween New York City!
(September 1, 2014) The NYC West Indian Day Parade held annually on Labor Day did not slip in its draw for 2014. There had to have been at least a million revelers lined along Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn to witness and partake in a celebration of colors and island rhythms.
(June 27, 2014) New York City celebrated Pride Day 2014. I was told that the parade commemorated the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots in Greenwich Village. According to Wiki, “the Stonewall riots are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for gay and lesbian rights in the United States.”
(June 21, 2014) “Celebrating Youth Power” was the theme at The 11th Annual Hunts Point Fish Parade and Summer Festival. The event jumped off under a beautiful sky with the excited support of community groups, families, students and teachers.
(June 8, 2014) Many grass-roots organizations turned-out in numbers to take part in the 2014 National Puerto Rican Day Parade. Under revamped leadership and vision, the parade, once again, was made open to all groups that reflect the true diversity of the greater Puerto Rican community in New York City.
