Over ten thousand dancers salsa, tap, tango, waltz, hula, break dance and more from 17th Street & Sixth Avenue to Tompkins Square Park in a joyous display of cultural diversity. At Eighth Street, the parade boogies east to Saint Marks Place.

The dancing continues from 3-7 pm at the DanceFest, a post-parade festival in Tompkins Square Park with aerial performances, workshops, dance parties, free lessons and more.
