Planning an event in NYC

The 4th of July is a planning event where the United States is filled with flags, barbecues and fireworks to celebrate its most patriotic day: Independence Day.

Americans commemorate the passing of the Declaration of Independence by Congress on July 4, 1776, with a national holiday held outdoors.

Another great planning an event is on the fourth Thursday of November, Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States, which we usually see reflected in movies.

It is an incredible party and the country is paralyzed, the streets are almost empty and most of the shops are closed. On Thanksgiving, everyone flies home to spend the evening with the family. Planning an event, Thanksgiving in New York begins with one of the most anticipated events on the calendar: the Macy’s Day Parade, it is a parade organized by the Macy’s department store that has been held since 1924. It is very famous, that millions of people attend to see it. Floats, dancers and musicians participate in the parade, celebrating Thanksgiving and the arrival of Christmas. There are also very famous characters, such as representations of Broadway musicals, there are giant balloons in the shape of endearing children’s characters, such as Snoopy, Hello Kitty or Garfield, and modern characters are added every year. Once the parade is over, another planning event is that families rush home to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. At the origin of this great celebration, thanks were given to God, and many families today continue to accompany the prayer dinner.

But Thanksgiving is also an occasion for everyone, regardless of their religious beliefs, to reflect and appreciate all that is good. No table can miss roast turkey accompanied by mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy (a thick sauce prepared with turkey juice), cornbread, Brussels sprouts and for dessert, it is classic eating pumpkin pie, the delicious pumpkin pie.

In many homes, dinner begins around 2 or 3 p.m. After dinner, it is a tradition to watch football games on television.

Another planning an event is when fall arrives, as New York is filled with pumpkins, skeletons and witches. The only wonderful explanation is that Halloween is coming up. It is the most terrifying night of the year that is celebrated on October 31. But everyone begins to think about the costume and prepare the camera to hunt pumpkins.

The first thing to do is to go looking for fall decorations, something that can be done whether you are in New York on Halloween night or if you will visit the city a little before.

The vast majority of homes begin to decorate themselves from the beginning of October. The residential neighborhoods are ideal for walking, since you can see how the neighbors decorate their houses with skeletons, scarecrows, cobwebs, zombies, witches, pumpkins, etc. Other amazing places that are often decorated for Halloween are the Chelsea Market and Rockefeller Center.

With more than two million spectators (between New Yorkers and tourists), the Village Halloween Parade is the largest Halloween parade in the world and the most well-known celebration of Halloween in New York.

It’s a lot like the Carnival parade, where over sixty thousand people parade down 6th Avenue in the most extravagant and incredible costumes you can imagine, accompanied by sparkling floats, gigantic puppets, loud music and lots of improvisation.

If the person who attends dresses up, they can participate; If you don’t have a costume, you can see her on October 31 starting at 7:00 PM on 6th Avenue (starts at Spring St and goes up to 16th Street).

Another planning an event is when the Big Apple fires the magic of Christmas sparkling under fireworks and there the crowds focus on Times Square. And, although the thermometer marks below zero, the night is filled with visitors.

The famous ball is quite a symbol, it rises at 6:00 p.m. and at 11:59 p.m. it descends for 60 seconds from the One Times Square building.

When the descent ends, during the first second of the new year, clouds of fireworks rain down on the square. On the last day of each year, it became a ritual for large crowds to gather in New York’s brightly lit Times Square to welcome new beginnings. At midnight, the crowd draws their loved one in for a ceremonial kiss.

Over the past century, the symbol of the New Year, the luminous ball, has evolved from an iron and wood cage adorned with light bulbs to what we see today as a dazzling technicolor glass object.
