Our Founder Mr. Angel Luis Rosado incorporated the Parade in 1987. It was his vision which saw the need for the Bronx to host its very own parade, honoring those which our forefathers whom came to this country looking for meaningful employment and a brighter future for their families and children.
The Bronx then and now is the location with the largest population of Puerto Rican outside to the beloved Island, over 350,000 strong. We began with 10-15 organizations and now number well over 100 local, national and international groups. We are proud of our diversity, cultural heritage, music, foods and dance coming together in celebration.
We invite everyone to bring their families and flags and join us in our celebration.
