NYC Celebrates Greek Independence in Grand Style with 100,000+ Strong Parade

By on April 3, 2015

Thousands of people from throughout New York City and the world converged to Central Park East along Fifth Avenue on Sunday, March 29th to celebrate the Greek Independence Day parade held every year.

The parade celebrated the 194th anniversary of Greek Independence and is one of the the largest gatherings of Greeks outside Greece anywhere in the world.

It is a day of remembrance, pride and inspiration for the Greek American Community.

The parade is also a celebration of the creation of an independent Greek nation in 1821 when Greeks, with help from committees and brigades of diaspora Greeks who were living and thriving outside the Ottoman Turkish occupied areas helped gain independence.

The victory is celebrated March of every year by the modern Greek state, which is a national day, and for many Greek expatriates, an international holiday.

Since 1938, the parade attracts over 100,000 spectators annually with approximately 25,000 participants, including students from the ti-state area’s Greek Orthodox Churches, schools and community groups.

The parade started on 64th Street and 5th Avenue and north to 79th Street.
