TNH at the Greek Parade on 5th Avenue of New York (Vids & Pics)

NEW YORK. The heart of worldwide Hellenism beats again on 5th Avenue. Three years after the last parade, and the hiatus of the pandemic that “paralyzed” the mechanisms of the open events, the Greek community returns with a magnificent parade in the most famous streets of Manhattan, in the center of New York.

More than 80 Associations, Unions and Communities addressed a wide call to their members and as a result Greek Americans of all ages are expected to parade in the American city, which is dressed in blue and white, sending a strong message that “Hellenism is alive”.
