Cast members from the acclaimed Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof will be part of the annual Celebrate Israel Parade, which will be presented June 5 from 11 AM-4 PM on Fifth Avenue in New York.

The Broadway artists will ride a specially designed float up Fifth Avenue, singing some of the most recognizable songs from the musical and performing live for the TV audience from the Grand Stand area.

The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York presents the parade, which will feature 30 floats with musical performers, 15 world-class marching bands and 40,000 marchers entertaining hundreds of thousands of spectators for the largest celebration of Israel in the world. In fact, more than 250 organizations are scheduled to march along Fifth Avenue, from 57th Street to 74th Street, including groups of rollerbladers, motorcyclists, dance groups and juggling clowns.

The parade will be televised live by FOX affiliate WWOR-TV My9 noon-2 PM and streamed online from noon-3 PM, so Israelis and Israel supporters throughout the world can watch.
