From the Wiki Entry: The Celebrate Israel Parade (formerly known as the Salute to Israel Parade) is, according to organizers, “the single largest gathering in the world in support of Israel”, and has been held annually in New York City since 1964. The Parade was renamed in 2011 to the Celebrate Israel Parade in a launch event at the Edison Ballroom in Midtown Manhattan.
