If you’re planning on meeting up with your friends or family to watch the parade, pick a meeting spot far away from the start point and head over there together. Give yourself at least an hour before the parade starts to get there.
The Parade Route
The parade route moves along 6th Avenue — starting at Spring Street and ending on 16th Street (take note – in previous years the parade marched to 23rd St.)
Wear a costume if you plan on being a part of the action. If you’re hard pressed to put one together for the outing, volunteer to carry a puppet in the parade.Typically, the parade ends at 10 p.m., but that doesn’t mean the party stops.
Fortunately for parade-goers and participants, it is forecast to be partly sunny with a highs in the low fifties. For weather updates, click here.
