Easter Bonnets Are On Display At New York's Annual Parade

[box][quote]Была в этом году зима или нет, вопрос спорный. Но это уже и не важно – весна начинается, и очень активно, – март, как никогда, насыщен праздникам и интересными событиями.
27 марта празднуется католическая Пасха, значит 25 марта выходной. В Нью-Йорке пройдет множество праздничных мероприятий, связанных с Пасхой, и конечно долгожданный и любимый всеми парад шляп.
Но еще раньше, 17 марта, Нью-Йорк отметит День Святого Патрика. Парад, костюмы, веселье, немало подвыпивших ирландцев и сочувствующих друзей внесут некоторое разнообразие в обычный рабочий день. Как и каждый год, советуем не пропустить парад, который пройдет по Пятой авеню.
Есть много, что стоит посетить и посмотреть в марте, но лично я собираюсь пойти на коктейльное шоу (Cocktail show) в Сохо, которое должно в музыкально-шуточном тоне поведать об истории коктейлей в Нью-Йорке. В атмосфере времен «Сухого закона», в историческом помещении, с настоящими коктейлями, включенными в стоимость билетов, с веселой музыкой и в хорошей компании, полученная информации должна быть особенно доходчива для восприятия.
Очень заманчиво звучит возможность побывать на концерте Нью-Йоркской филармонии и концерте Венского оркестра в Линкольн центре. Выставка архитектурного дизайна и интерьер-дизайна на 92 и 94 пирсе, будет на редкость интересной и вдохновляющей не только для специалистов, но и для тех, кто хочет добавить новизны в свой повседневный быт. Выставка автомобилей говорит сама за себя! Не пропустите.
Безусловно, кроме этого будет множество театральных и музыкальных представлений, оперных спектаклей, джазовых концертов, выставок, шоу, ярмарок и фестивалей.
Так что дело за вами, чтобы март был удачным, нужно только внимательно следить за афишей.
