MIDTOWN — K-pop takes center stage at the 33rd annual Korean Parade and K-Town Festival on Saturday.

As many as 1,000 people representing roughly 100 organizations are expected to march in the parade, which is scheduled to kick off at 12:15 p.m., traveling along Sixth Avenue from 38th to 27th streets.

Saturday's events will also include a "K-Town Festival" street fair on 32nd Street featuring booths and cooking demonstrations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and a "K-Pop Concert" at Fifth Avenue and 32nd Street from 2 to 4 p.m.

The festivities will mix "popular Korean culture with the traditional, running the gamut from rock balladeer Jang-hoon Kim and the Mariah Carey of Korea, SoHyang, who will headline the K-Pop Concert, to Korean traditional dancing, drumming and martial arts."
