The “Canyon of Heroes” has celebrated returning veterans, astronauts, heads of state, and sports champions with ticker tape parades in since 1886. Millions of people have watched and cheered on their heroes and champions ride on floats while paper and confetti swirled around. When this pandemic ends and it is safe to do so, let’s celebrate the New York City Class of 2020 as they travel up Broadway in their hard earned caps and gowns, waving their diplomas!
