FREE Phil Collins Day Parade
After a lot of thought and some research into interesting things that happened on February 15th (like Canada adopting the maple leaf flag), I realized that I’m writing about something too absurd to try and be clever in my introduction. Instead, I’m just going to tell you that tomorrow is apparently the fifth annual Phil Collins Day in Brooklyn, and this year marks the first ever Phil Collins parade.
That’s right, you can watch a parade dedicated to the man who brought Another Day in Paradise, Genesis and the soundtracks to Balto and Tarzan. If I had to guess British pop stars who’d be honored by a parade in Brooklyn, he’d be at the bottom of my list. But there will be floats drifting down the streets of Greenpoint for him tomorrow, along with a video clip filled party at Shayz Lounge.
