In our last post, we covered museums, dancing, theater, and
even a Swedish celebration of the Summer Solstice! If one thing’s for sure,
it’s that there’s always plenty to see and do in NYC. This June, as you plan
your NYC vacation,
be sure to mark your calendar for some of these exciting events happening
during your visit:
Taste of Times
Square: As one of NYC’s longest-running food festivals, the Taste of Times
Square event is a must-taste attraction! More than 50 area restaurants
participate, many of which are in the famous Restaurant Row. A ticket gets you
samples from local eateries. June 11 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Visit
TimesSquareNYC.org for more information.
Broadway Shows &
Plays – If you haven’t tried one of our Broadway Theatre
Packages yet, this is the time to do it. While the theatres will be there year after
year, the same shows may not. Even long running shows come to a close
eventually, so be sure to catch the classics like Chicago, Phantom of the Opera,
and The Lion King. Other exciting
shows happening in June include: Mary
Poppins, Evita, Sister Act, Once, Peter and the Star Catcher, Death of a
Salesman, Ghost, Memphis, Jersey
Boys, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Jesus Christ Superstar, Rock of Ages,
Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, War Horse, A
Streetcar Named Desire, and Harvey.
The Mermaid Parade:
This is one of Coney Island’s most exciting summer events. Since 1983,
participants from all over the world have come to NYC decked out as mermaids as
they walk through Coney Island before taking a dip into the Atlantic Ocean. June
23 at 2:00 p.m.
National Puerto Rican
Parade: On June 10, join this annual parade on Fifth Avenue as you watch
floats, musical performances, and millions of spectators celebrate Puerto Rican
culture. You may even spot a few Puerto Rican celebrities, who are known for
making an appearance at this grand event! Visit
NationalPuertoRicanDayParade.org for more information.
