Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade NYC-2022

Puerto Rican pride will be celebrated throughout New York City in its typically colorful, in-person fashion this Sunday as the iconic national parade returns to Manhattan following a two-year pandemic hiatus.

The 65th annual event along Fifth Avenue will celebrate the culture, arts, achievements and legacies of Puerto Rico and its people. The parade starts at 11 a.m. and stretches along the iconic Manhattan span between 43rd and 79th streets.

This year it is dedicated to the municipality of Cidra, Puerto Rico, which is also referred to as the Town of Eternal Spring, or el Pueblo de la Eterna Primavera.

“This is a milestone year for the Parade, and our return to Fifth Avenue is yet another sign that NYC and the Puerto Rican community are strong, resilient and as vibrant as ever,” National Puerto Rican Day Parade Board Chair Louis Maldonado said in announcing the planned return last month.
