This parade up Fifth Avenue celebrates Puerto Rican community and culture, which connects the millions of Puerto Ricans living in the New York City metropolitan area and across the United States with their compatriots in the Caribbean. “Lively” doesn’t even begin to describe the event, which attracts tens of thousands of marchers and millions of spectators every year and includes energetic musical performances, floats and celebrities.
