Greek Independence Day
By MARTIN GANSBERG
The Greeks have a word for it. Yesterday the word was vrochi (rain) and thousands of Greek-Americans hoped that it would end in time for the 31st annual Independence Day parade on Fifth Avenue.
The Greek Independence Day Parade has a web site at http://www.paradeonfifth.org that includes information about this year’s events.
