A follow up to the Dec 4th announcement
The River of Pride Flag and The Unity Pride Flag have been invited by NYC Pride to be a part of a historical moment in time. This June 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the first time in our history that WorldPride will be hosted by the USA all to take part in this celebration.
Describing the feeling of an invitation to be a part of history, a once in a lifetime event with WorldPride, Stonewall 50th and NYC Pride altogether is more than an immense honor. One we are proud to share with everyone!
A community coming together
After announcing our participation in NYC Pride we received an outpour of support and people looking to volunteers to march. The River of Pride Flag is looking for around 600 people to walk with it and The Unity Pride Flag will need around 100. If you’d like to join us in NYC for the march please signup here by filling out the form asking for your email and name. This info is a requirement for NYC in order to be let into the march and with take less than a minute. This info will be shared with the NYC police for safety reasons.
Stay informed by joining the WorldPride NYC 2019 Facebook Group. A hotel & bus package is being worked on by a friend of the flag and will be posted in the group when ready. It’s NYC so don’t hesitate as the first hotel we reserved for our group sold out in less then four hours. People have been having good luck with AirBnB as well.
Thinking about your NYC travel plans
On average 2 million spectators attend the march in NYC for Pride with 46 thousand people marching. This coming pride they are expecting 5 to 6 million spectators. What that means for people getting in and out of the city is a lot of traffic.
If you’ll be driving, try to give yourself extra time getting there. Some have said to expect up to 4 hours of added traffic. Peak travel will be Saturday and Sunday so if possible you may want to add on a day either side of those for an easier trip.
Have you thought about your stay yet? The hotel rooms in the city will soon be filling up before you know it if they haven’t started already started so you’ll want to get your room very soon. If you’re driving the same goes for parking. Many parking garages now offer online reservations so you know a spot will be ready for you when you arrive.
