Reminders: the Dance Parade and DanceFest is today!
As you've likely noticed, barricades are up along St. Mark's Place (above) ahead of the 13th annual Dance Parade (and DanceFest!) this afternoon.
The parade begins at 1 p.m. at 21st Street and Broadway, and will feature live bands, DJs and a lot of dancers — more than 80 styles of dance and nearly 200 groups. (This link has a list of all the participants.)
The route eventually passes Astor Place and moves along St. Mark's Place ... wrapping up in Tompkins Square Park... where DanceFest 2019 happens from 3-7 p.m. "with choreographed performances, dance lessons, aerial and social dance – on five stages, all free to the public."
