NYC – Puerto Rican Parade

update …The parade is still great… June 12, 2016… STILL TIME TO GO!

I am always amazed at the number of families that turn out to watch this parade. It is the loudest, most-colorful and lively parade in the city. The people  take a lot of pride in their heritage. The parade is full of celebrities, marching (dancing) people and trucks – loaded with people. It is a “fun” parade.

I captured some of the spectators as they enjoyed the day. The parade pictures you can find in newspapers or on the internet (they are often better than the ones I can get).
