A sea of Red White and Blue pride filled New York’s 5th avenue for the annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade! Hundreds of thousands of spectators lined the streets to watch, floats, flags, dancers, and incredible music acts in a cultural celebration unlike any other.

The largest cultural event in the nation, and an amazing day of pride and beautiful celebration.
