Real Good for Free: The Uncle Sam Celebration @ Knickerbacker Park, 9/13/09

Friday, September 11th, 2009

Yes, it’s time to celebrate the life of a true American icon, and really, what better way to do that than with a John Lennon tribute show?

You can’t make this stuff up.

Anyway, the annual Uncle Sam Parade kicks off at 1pm on Sunday, September 13 from 125th Street and Fifth Avenue in Lansingburgh, and it marches over to 106th Street.

And immediately following the parade, there will be a family fun celebration in Knickerbacker Park (103rd Street and 8th Avenue) featuring rides for kids, chicken barbeque, skydivers and, of course, music:

Here’s the music schedule for the Uncle Sam Celebration:

3pm: Donny “Elvis” Romines
4pm: Imagining Lennon with McCartney

And it all wraps up with a fireworks display at 8pm.
