National Greek Parade

The National Greek Parade was held yesterday on 5th Avenue at Upper East Side. I was on my way to Central Park to take some photos and came upon the start of the parade. One of the most spectacular scenes at the parade was this gigantic Greek flag held up by a dozen or so marchers.

So have you been to Greece?

Great photo of that flag! Of course you had lots of people holding it for you -:)

Good Monday to you Ming!

Excellent photo, Ming. This must have been difficult to photograph I feel.

Yes, I've been to Greece several times. Adore it. Skiathos several times and stays in Athens.

le drapeau est impressionnant par sa taille. Cela devait être une superbe fête.

The flag is impressive in its size. This should be a great celebration.

Those large pieces of colored cloth are super heavy and thankfully there was no mist or rain or they become impossible. I like the photo you posted today. Nice work.

Abraham Lincoln in Brookville, Ohio where you can see a tiny fly on a honey bee's wing.

Wow, you captured such a cool perspective of that flag and the marchers. It looks like you were standing on a ladder above them! I've never been to Greece but it has always been high on the list of places I want to visit. I love Greek food!

Unfortunately never been to Greece. Have been to a number of countries and almost on my way to Greece twice, but...

The breakfast table on a previous post seems to be an excellent idea!

I wanted you to know that I stopped by, but because of my shoulder surgery, I can't type with both hands. Visiting the sites, though, has helped brighten my day!

I go to the Greek Islands for my summer holiday. I'm going this year! The people are so friendly, the food is so good and the sun is always shining! Try the Greek beer - Mythos. It tastes sooo good!

Cool shot! Been to Greece and loved it, especially the island of Santorini (Fira).

I was at the Met museum during the parade, it was nice to watch. I LOVE Greece: the food, tasty organic wine, and the hospitality was unbelievable! I've never been treated so well, and this was when the war in Iraq started so I was paranoid about anti-American sentiment, but all were pleasant!

I missed the men in their little skirts and funny hats? Can't belive I missed that!
My visit to Greece was a long time ago -- last year of highschool.
