Parades & Holidays Celebrations – NYC 2 WAY Limo

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

New York City is home to millions of Irish descent, but on March 17th, everybody is Irish.  In NYC, festivities abound across the city, but the main draw is the St. Patrick’s Day parade.  Started in 1762, the New York City St. Patrick’s Day parade is the largest in the world, as well as being the oldest regularly occurring civilian parade.  With about 150,000 marchers each year, the 5 hour procession travels 1.5 miles down 5th Avenue to the delight of the hundreds of thousands in attendance.

Puerto Rican Day Parade

Another nod to the many immigrants in New York City, the Puerto Rican Day Parade, held on the second Sunday in June, is a colorful affair down 5th Avenue, where the foods, culture, and sounds of American protectorate Puerto Rico can be fully appreciated.

Independence Day

While every city and town across America celebrates Independence Day, the fireworks, parades, and celebrations of New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. are unparalleled.  New York, however, is the only place to see the bombs bursting in air next to the Statue of Liberty, the symbol of freedom and coming to America for a better life, so that gives a bit of an edge.
