The official NYC Thanksgiving Parade is canceled,  but that doesn’t mean we can’t still keep the tradition alive! We are teaming up with Quiet Events’ Silent Disco for a private Mini Thanksgiving Day Parade. Celebrate Thanksgiving with friends old and new as we trace the path of the historic parade from the Upper West Side to 34th street. Everyone will get a set of wireless headphones and listen to our special Thanksgiving Parade Soundtrack that will keep you dancing all the way to Herald Square! We’ll also stop along the way for a few group dances and to learn a little history of the parade and the historic places along the way.


We are limiting attendance to 50 people as we socially distance dance and sing (with masks). With headphones on, we can spread out up to two city blocks!


Music selection for tonight:


  • DJ 1 (Green): Dance Hits & 90’s & 2K Throwbacks
  • DJ 3 (Blue): Special Thanksgiving soundtrack including some marching band favorites that you would hear at the real parade!

How it works: When you arrive, you will receive a pair of special wireless headphones. You can adjust the volume and choose between up to three DJ’s with a flip of a switch. Each headset has a color LED that shows what channel you are listening to. It is super social; you’re in control of the music! There is no loud music that you need to talk over. Plus, there is no ringing in your ears when you leave!

Precautions We are taking: We take the pandemic very seriously as many of our friends and family have been affected. We are doing everything we can to reduce the spread, while trying to keep people entertained, allowing us to generate income for our employees, while staying within the city and CDC social distancing guidelines for activities.


We are aware that the virus does not spread easily from touching objects, but we are still taking steps to reduce as much interaction as possible. All our equipment is wiped down with isopropyl alcohol and wipes will be onsite.


Precautions YOU should take: If you have a fever, cough, or been around new groups of people within two weeks, you should not attend as you put others at risk (don’t worry, we will have more events for you to attend). While dancing, singing, wearing masks are required.


Can I come alone?  Yes, 98% of those attending this event normally register on their own. You welcome to bring as many non member guests, friends & co workers as you’d like, just make sure to register for the number of people that you want below. Our staff will be ready to greet you and introduce you to others whether you are on your own or with guests.

Ages: All ages welcome.  Most of our events attract 20’s -40’s although some events can skew younger or older (50’s) depending on the event. Some events are clearly age specific as indicated.   If this is an issue for you contact Dave at the address below and we can usually give you a very accurate idea of what to expect.

There may also be some people looking to find that someone special who share a passion for the same activities (but don’t make this the sole reason you come out).
