The annual Third Avenue Festival takes place today on 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and will span from Bay Ridge Avenue to 92nd Street. Come out for food, drink, shopping and musical experiences.
The annual Bay Ridge parade will take place at 1PM and run from 76th Street to 92nd Street in the neighborhood.
Today is Memorial Day and that means its time for the annual Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Memorial Day Parade. This year while a special one as it was the 150th of its kind, did not have the weather on its side and would be rather rainy throughout the course of the event. That was not going to stop me from snapping photographs for readers of the blog to enjoy and I will begin as usual with the video of The Rolling Thunder passing through. There didn’t seem like there was many of them today and I guess with other parades taking place that they had to split them up. Enjoy.
Now it was time to begin the marching and from here on its just going to be the photos to entertain you. With a lot of friends and family not living in the immediate area anymore, I feel this brings a little bit of home to where they live now. Enjoy.
Was out with a friend not too long ago doing some errands and general zipping around when I realized I was close to a stretch of the Belt Parkway that my Pop always used to refer to as “The Scenic Route”. With that in mind I snapped to attention with the Galaxy Note 4 and recorded some video that I am now sharing with friends, family and fans of our little home on the web. Well, the ones that are not usually following the PiercingMetal.com stuff I mean (insert shameless plug here LOL).
Before you ask, the answer is NO I was not driving and please pardon the bumps in the video, this is “as is” presentation like you were sitting there zipping past the Narrows on the way to the exit that brings me to the Creative Command HQ. Speaking personally, I’ve always liked this particular run of road and am glad to share it with you all. I thought it would be fun to send to my no longer area resident parents who have retired to the warmer climates of the south. Be sure to do this yourself should you be in town for any reason 🙂 Until next time.
Today is Memorial Day 2016 and just a short time ago my neighborhood of Bay Ridge was once again host to the King’s County Memorial Day Parade. This would be the 149th edition of this parade and it was initially kind of scary in terms if the weather above us. It rained a few hours ago but reports were that it would clear up around the time of the parade and lo and behold it did. Now it was time to honor those who’s service and sacrifice have helped keep this country safe and free. Once again this was to be an early starting parade, at 11am to be precise and would be led off by the Rolling Thunder motorcycle club. I grabbed my usual spot on the corner of 92nd Street and Third Avenue and snapped away for your own enjoyment for those who could not be here with us today based on no longer being in the neighborhood or with other commitments. As I’ve done in the past I will start off with the video of the Rolling Thunder and then get right into a whole lot of photographs. Please sit back, enjoy a coffee or something else to relax you and enjoy our presentation.
