This was my 1st time going to this parade & I have to say it was one of the most exciting. The music on the floats is like no other you've ever heard before, makes want to shake shake everything, the costumes, the color, and this year the energy was amped as Governor Cuomo said "YES" to gay marriage. Here are some pics from other sources the last one is from me to prove I was there! The theme was 'Proud & Powerful". The costumes brought an array of color, feathers, heavy beading, and different interpretations of wedding attire.
