Even if the whole thing is too crowded and semi-naked for you, you have to admit, it's objectively a very nice thing. Besides the fact that the parade was explicitly created by and for the arts community—which is incredible, if you take a second to remember, say, the last time you accidentally stumbled upon the St. Patrick's Day parade, and everything that entailed—it's also just a beloved, feel-good civic happening.
So much so that the NYPD apparently call it "no crime day." That is so, so nice! Let's give the (friendly, law-abiding) people what they want! Just donate to the parade already. It'll feel great.
