Annual Broad Channel Labor Day Parade 9/5

By Daniel Solomon


The American flag is carried down the block. The American flag is carried down the block. This year, the annual Broad Channel Labor Day Parade steps off on Monday, September 5. The event is set to begin at the neighborhood’s community park, go up Cross Bay Boulevard, and loop back down. The parade, sponsored by the Broad Channel Athletic Club, promises to be a fun conclusion to summer 2011.

Amid the floats and flags, politics will also be in the air as candidates for Assembly and Congress make their final push for office in advance of the September 13 special elections. Of course, that won’t distract anyone from the festivities. Pictures are from last year’s event.
