Celebrate Israel Parade is Back on WWOR/Channel 9

The Celebrate Israel parade makes it annual march along Fifth Avenue, Sunday, June 3.

And WWOR/Channel 9 calls the parade home for a second straight year.

Harry Martin and Israeli TV’s Becky Griffin get the hosting duties, with live reports from WNYW/Channel 5 reporter Robert Moses. The noon to 2 p.m. broadcast will feature two hours of parade festivities, including dozens of colorful floats; rock, reggae, folk and a cappella groups; marching bands; stilt-walkers; motorcycle riders; dancing rollerbladers; and juggling clowns.

In making the announcement Lew Leone, WWOR VP and general manager, said, “My9 is proud to be the exclusive broadcaster of this annual event. We look forward to providing our viewers with coverage of this joyous celebration, which honors Israel’s rich history and vibrant heritage.”

Channel 9 will also stream the parade for the second year from noon until its conclusion at approximately 4 p.m. on its website, www.my9tv.com.  Hundreds of thousands of spectators are expected to gather this year to celebrate Israel, joined by a record 35,000 marchers.
