It's "parade season" again in Manhattan. These photos were from last Sunday's "Salute to Israel Parade", the largest event in the world celebrating the Anniversary of Israel's Independence. An estimated 100,000 participants stepped off on Fifth Avenue cheered on by about a million spectators. It was a sea of blue and white, as community leaders, American and Israeli dignitaries, celebrities, floats and marching bands come together for this annual parade. Pro-Palestine demonstrators were there too.
