2022 NYC Dance Parade

We braved the heat and took in the NYC Dance Parade this last weekend, one of our favorite annual events. After a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic, it was great to see so many people participating and putting on some fantastic performances. Kudos to everyone involved!

Below are just some of the highlights. You can see more photos over on our Flickr page.

This woman has the most awesome earrings ever. Look closer...it's Prince!

Imagine dancing for miles on hot pavement in these shoes...

The hero of the day was this woman with a garden hose on St Mark's Place who brought cool relief to hundreds of exhausted dancers. It was a dangerously hot day and some of the more elaborate costumes and masks had to be stifling.

This spot was just two blocks from the end of the parade route at Tompkins Square Park, so everyone who passed by here was weary and welcomed the refreshing shower.

Sometimes a bottle of water was the only relief from the heat.

The Dance Parade, along with the Saint George Ukrainian Festival a couple of blocks away on the same day, made for an exciting weekend in the East Village.
