New York parades are the biggest, flashiest, and most exciting. Okay, I'm a little bit biased as a long-time New  Yorker.

Sure, New York parades snarl up traffic and cause pedestrian rage incidents to skyrocket, but they also provide opportunities for New Yorkers to cut loose, get creative, and party in the streets.

I've rounded up my favorite New York parades -- along with photos of all of the action for those of you who love a parade, just not in real life.
