Puerto Rican Day Parade, New York City Holiday

"The National Puerto Rican Day Parade is a New York tradition that unites New Yorkers as it celebrates the outstanding contributions of the Puerto Rican people to the history of New York City, as well as to our City's diversity. I salute the Puerto Rican Community for another year of accomplishment and growth,"

The National Puerto Rican Day Parade started in 1995; the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City began in 1958. The parade features floats sponsored by businesses, singing, dancing and marching. Last year there were over 100,000 marchers and 3 million spectators at the parade.
