This year’s 53rd annual Celebrate Israel Parade is set for Sunday, June 5. As always, the route goes up Fifth Avenue from 57th to 74th streets.
The parade, one of the largest in New York City, runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More than 30 floats with musical performers, 15 world-class marching bands, and 40,000 marchers will entertain hundreds of thousands of spectators for the largest celebration of Israel in the world.
Several Israeli music artists and guests will be at the parade, including this year’s honorary grand marshal, the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, as well as Jewish U.S. Olympic gold medalists and American athletes scheduled to compete at the upcoming Maccabi Games in Israel.
The parade will be held rain or shine. For the latest information on the parade, go to celebrateisraelny.org, follow on Twitter, @celebrateisrael, or go to the Facebook page: Celebrate Israel Parade.
