Memorial Day Parade, Monday, May 27, 2019

We have again been asked to participate in the the Memorial Day Parade in Inwood. This is the oldest parade in Manhattan and it is an honor to a part of this event. The parade will be held on Monday, May 27th, 2019 and it happens rain or shine! As of right now, the weather looks to be good! If it is not raining, you may wear this year’s costume to promote the Recital, However, if it is raining or the ground is wet, do not wear your recital costume. Instead, please wear any BPAC shirt you may have, any dress up or past costume or leotard with tutu (girls). Regardless of weather, DO NOT WEAR DANCE SHOES! Please wear comfortable shoes that you can stand and walk in. We will assemble along Dyckman Street & Seaman Avenue at the Ring Garden at 11:45am. The parade begins at 12:00pm and the route is up Broadway to Isham Street, were we will make a left on to Isham Street. Parents can walk with their children. Parents should walk with young children.

After the parade (about 20-30 minutes) everyone goes their own ways to celebrate the holiday. We hope to see you there!
