NYC Bus Trip

September 9 @ 6:00 am - 8:30 pm

Join us to celebrate individuals with Down syndrome from Delaware who will be on the big screen in Times Square! 

Numerous individuals from Delaware were selected in a National Down Syndrome Society contest to be displayed on the Jumbotron in Times Square on Saturday, September 9th. The Down Syndrome Association of Delaware is sponsoring a bus trip to NYC on the day of the video. 

The bus is air conditioned and has a bathroom on board. The bus is limited to 55 seats. We anticipate the spots filling up quickly so make sure to reserve your family’s spot ASAP.  We will have the bus to ourselves for the day so families will be able to leave stuff on the bus during the day.

We will depart at 6:00am from the Newark 273/Route 7 Park n Ride on Saturday, September 9th. The bus will bring us right to Times Square by 8:30am. The video will start around 9:30am. Later in the day, we will meet the bus at a TBD location near Times Square in NYC to depart by 6:00pm. The bus will return to the Park n Ride in Newark by ~8:30pm.  The bus will be leaving promptly from both Newark and New York City. Please plan to be early.

The day is yours to explore NYC- we have no planned activities for the group and you are on your own to do as you’d like throughout the day.

The NDSS is holding its Buddy Walk in Central Park following the video screening. If you are interested in attending more info can be found on the bus registration page.

If you are not interested in attending the walk, you may visit one of the many local tourist sights or museums before meeting back for the bus departure at 6pm. 

This event is for DSA of DE members and their immediate families. Please ensure your $15 a year annual family dues have been paid before registering. If you have not paid your dues, visit: https://www.dsadelaware.org/home-page/membership/.
