Dip Into Bliss - Love Parade NYC

  • Union Square Park 201 Park Avenue South New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Get ready for a day of connection we will all remember for years. Let's accelerate empathy and love throughout the big apple!

Love Parade NYC is a march for unity and evolution! - a demonstration of positivity and connection. The Love Parade combines random acts of kindness with activism.

Love Parade NYC will begin at noon with a gathering at Union Square. At one o'clock we will rally and connect, and at 3 we will march together on the sidewalk passing out flowers and spreading positivity. Finally, we will end with a celebration at the House of Yes!

Let's be honest: We have more technology, data, & knowledge available at our fingertips than ever before in human history to solve the problems of Earth. Studies prove that people rarely change their minds because of facts or resources alone - People change course after they have a CHANGE OF HEART-- a significant emotional experience that rewires the brain and allows them to reimagine a new future. On Sunday, 4.30.17 we are creating an ACT OF BEAUTY on the streets to WAKE PEOPLE UP to evolution-- through compassion, peace, and unity!

At Love Parade NYC we will be using the tools of playfulness + love + connection. We will spread love in the form of giving without expecting anything in return (by passing out flowers). Imagine 100's of people dressed in eye-catching, playful costumes, walking with signs, pets, streamers, instruments, and passing out flowers.

NOW is the only time we have to make the decision that is going to improve our lives and change our world. If we want progress we have to first come together.

RALLY (1 - 3pm)
- Interactive performances and guest speakers; setting the love-centered intention for the day and energizing attendees, we have an interactive rally in which people get to know other people who also choose love now.

MARCH (3 - 5pm)
- BYO-Flowers! Marching on the street sidewalks from Union Square to the Highline, we give flowers as gifts and share smiles to create a small change of heart that will have a ripple effect into our cherished community.
