Celebrate Israel Parade and Concerts in NYC Today!

The 2011 Celebrate Israel Parade, the world’s largest public gathering in celebration of Israel, will commemorate the country’s 63rd anniversary with a host of new floats, bands, entertainment and Israeli and American talent along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Whether you’re marching or cheering from the sidelines, the parade starts at noon and goes until 4 pm. Or, if you are looking to work on your cardio, you’ll be getting there extra early to join the 5,400 participants in the Celebrate Israel Run presented by New York Road Runners

There aren’t too many events in New York City that combine Sesame Street’s Grover and New York’s political leaders – Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer will be marching along with 30,000 others. Along with the 23 floats and 16 marching bands will be a ton of entertainment.

Accompanying this year’s festivities will be a massive afterparty, the Celebrate Israel Concert at Edison Ballroom at 7 pm featuring tons of great artists and drinks on the house! Performing at the event will be platinum-selling Beit Habubot and pop sensation Israela Asago.

Beit Habubot gave a special preview concert on FOX 5′s “Good Day New York” on Friday morning, which you can see below.

It’s going to be an amazing day, the weather looks great and we hope to see you all there! It will also be broadcast live on My9 if you can’t be there in person.
