Thousands of Pakistanis and Pakistani-Americans watched the Pakistan Day Parade August 28 as it proceeded south on Madison Ave. from 38th St., ending at Madison Square Park. There the crowd heard from many speakers, including Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer. Pakistan’s Ambasssadors to the U.S. in Washington and to the U.N. were among the dignitaries on hand, as well as the Consul General of Pakistan in New York.

Meanwhile Pakistani flags, attire, jewelry and food were on sale on a side street near the park.

Mohsin Zaheer and Karen Pennar captured some moments of the day’s festivities.
