The Parade is also an opportunity to celebrate our unique identities outwardly with pride (real or fantasy!), and create a magical shared experience, together. The collective impact of thousands of footsteps, faces, and voices, brings human power to the electrifying BLINK event, with many individual streams of light contributing to a greater whole.
