The route of the New York Puerto Rican Day Parade heads up 5th Avenue – NBC New York

bulletin

Puerto Rican pride is being celebrated this Sunday in New York City in its signature colorful style.

The parade, now in its 67th year, will travel along Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 79th Street from 11 a.m. This year, the Municipality of San Germán, Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rican communities of Hawaii are recognized.

Affectionately known as “The City de las Lomas” and founded in 1511, San Germán is the second oldest municipality in Puerto Rico and one of the first Spanish settlements.

Parade organizers and Mayor Eric Adams held a Puerto Rican flag-raising ceremony Tuesday in Bowling Green Park in Lower Manhattan to officially kick off the parade week.

“The tribute to the people of San Germán and the Puerto Rican community of Hawaii includes the easternmost and westernmost portions of the Puerto Rican communities in the United States,” said Lillian Rodríguez López, chair of the NPRDP Board of Directors, in a statement. “Our 2024 theme, Boricua de Corazón, reflects our collective sense that being Puerto Rican is fundamental to our identity and lives in our hearts, wherever we are in the world.”
