The 10th Annual Dance Parade & Festival is tomorrow (Saturday)

Several readers have asked about the Dance Parade ... and subsequent Dancefest in Tompkins Square Park tomorrow given the iffy weather forecast.

Here's the latest missive from the organizers, edited for length, via the EVG inbox...

Finally — the world's largest display of diversity, Dance Parade kicks off at 1 pm THIS SATURDAY!!

For many it will be the best day of the year — despite the rainy forecast. Why? Because there are few places on earth where so many proudly express, through movement, their freedom and artistry. Dance Parade serves to keep dance alive in New York City!

We will shine bright even if it's a little wet here and there ... don't let the excuse of some grey skies keep you away. Come out and join the fun ....

Greg Miller
Executive Director
Dance Parade, Inc.

The parade starts at 1 p.m. at 21st and Broadway (see the map above)... and eventually heads east on St. Mark's Place into Tompkins Square Park for DanceFest, which runs from 3-7 p.m. You may find all sorts of pertinent info at the Dance Parade website.
