Yes, there probably are. That’s why I invited others to post information on additional events. This was a way to start the conversation but was not intended to be a comprehensive list. Maybe others could google and see what they can find.

 I must have missed something.  What was so good about it? I live off of one of the streets that were affected by the closures, wasn’t very pleasant for me.  And yes, I know we have a lot of parades celebrating all different ethnicities.  I only heard loud music blaring from speakers coming from cars.

You should have come down and watched then you would have seen what you missed. How bad were the closures on your life, really? Or should we start making america great again?

I'm delighted to hear this was an enjoyable parade.  I think the last time I saw this particular one, it seemed like a big ad for a radio station with little participation by community groups.  But that was a few years ago.   

I hope it has gained some of the charm of the Flower Parade and the Bolivian Parade, two of my favorites of our neighborhood's Latin American parades.

Bolivian parade, Oct 20 https://queensmuseum.org/events/bolivian-paradeup

Clearly the Bolivian parade did not happen on the 20th. This other site says it's going to be on Sunday, Oct. 27th.
