FOLEY SQUARE, MANHATTAN
111 Worth St
New York, NY 10013
Arrive between 12pm-2pm
What to expect
The celebration will begin at 12 pm May 11, 2019.
We create a ripple effect of change that starts on the sidewalks: encounter hundreds of people, dressed in eye-catching, playful costumes, walking with signs, pets, instruments, and passing out flowers. We take the path of the heart to open the mind, with an invitation to discover what it would be like to choose love in each moment.
BRING A BOUQUET TO GIVE AWAY
We use the natural beauty of flowers to transport us back in the present moment.
DRESS AND ACT WONDROUS
Be colorful and playful with your outfit and attitude.
MEET AT 12PM, FOLEY SQUARE
Where, I wonder, will we go from there
We gathered at Foley Square in Manhattan to dance, mediate, eye-gaze, and interact with performance art before we paraded across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The Parade grew in size, with 500+ people impacted at the Union Square rally, and over 10 partner organizations. We paraded down 14th street from Union Square, and went underground on the (L)ove Train to spread joy.
The parade started as an idea, and 200 people gathered to see what we could create. We paraded down 14th Street, from Union Square to the Highline Park. Passed out gifts of flowers and cookies, to make New York City a more beautiful place, started a ripple effect of change using random acts of kindness.
This is a community run collaboration: We are looking for performers and planners of all kinds to make this possible.
