Reminders: The Dance Parade and DanceParty are today — even in the rain!

The 17th annual Dance Parade is taking place today (you may have seen — or knocked over? — the barricades). 

And this is a go even in the rain, so bring those dance slickers. 

This year's grand marshals, Ronald K. BrownNatasha Diggs and Elizbeth Streb, will kick off the event at 11:45 a.m. from a new starting location — 17th Street and Sixth Avenue (it was on Broadway and 20th last year). 

And more details via the EVG inbox:
At this year's parade and festival, Dance Parade will celebrate its 17th year under the theme "Beyond the Zone" with 10,000 dancers from 160+ dance organizations who will present over 100 unique styles of dance down Avenue of Americas, parade across West 8th Street, perform before the Grand Stand at St. Mark's Place before reaching Tompkins Square Park [for DanceFest]. 
The DanceFest is from 3-7 p.m. in Tompkins.
