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:
