ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) More than four thousand people dressed head to toe in white, descended on New York City's Rockefeller Park on Monday, for this year's 'Diner en Blanc.' The annual gathering is a Parisian tradition where participants gather for an impromptu open-air dinner dressed in white and bring with them white tablecloths, glassware and other finery for a large picnic. The pop-up event has grown in popularity and has been replicated around the world with events in the United States, Canada, Spain, Singapore, Mexico and even Rwanda. The goal of the event is simple, organizers say: "To gather at a secret location with the sole purpose of sharing a high-quality meal with good friends at the heart of one of the city's most beautiful locations." And for the first time this year, a 'Diner en Blanc' will take place in Washington, D.C. on September 4th. The secret location will be revealed a few hours before the dinner begins.
