Tomorrow, Saturday June 13…the Virtual Puerto Rican Day Parade!

The New York Puerto Rican Day Parade is still alive!

A group of young and passionate Boricuas, who know the sanctity of tradition,  refused to forget our parade. Not for a year, not for a minute. They donated their talent and labor for months…to create a new, virtual Puerto Rican Day Parade.

In fact, that ‘s the name of it:

THE VIRTUAL PUERTO RICAN DAY PARADE…on Saturday, June 13, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

It is not affiliated with the traditional Fifth Avenue parade…but it is keeping the tradition alive for all of us.

Over the past few months, the virtual parade just kept growing…and growing…

And growing.

And tomorrow (June 13) we can see Tito Rojas, Frankie Negron, Tito Puente Jr, IVY Queen, Luis Guzman, and countless others…all of whom will be part of the Virtual Puerto Rican Day Parade! 

A special thanks goes out to Bella Angelysse Matias, Sonia Velasquez, Gualterio Alomar, and the other tireless volunteers at Virtual Puerto Rican Day Parade. It is inspiring to see young people who know the value of old traditions.

To  view the virtual parade on June 13, simply visit their website:  https://paradavirtualpr.com/

You will see easy and complete instructions, to view the entire parade.

You are one click away from a fabulous, fierce and free afternoon of Puerto Rican culture!

  1. They are charging a fee to participate, they say they are a non profit using a fiscal conduit but don’t say which one. Normally, i would expect to see the information for the non-profit, IRS number, etc. I would like to participate but i would like my money to go to a worthy cause. We don’t know where the money is going!

  2. El Desfile Puertorriqueño es hoy por hoy una manifestación comercial. En el pasado era mucho más cultural. También hay que tomar en cuenta otro punto, es decir, la participación del movimiento independentista. Si el directorio del Desfile le permite a los independentistas marchar siempre nos relegan a la cola de los participantes. Por esta dos razones no he ido al Desfile en tantos años.

  3. Hi, My name is Migdalia Hernández, soy Puertorriqueña. I would like to know if I can invite a Latino music group to participate in the Virtual Puerto Rican Day Parade? Thank you and stay safe and healthy. Many blessings! I would need to ask the group if they are interested.

  4. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    Puerto Rican Parade in New York City … VIRTUAL!! … “They are a noble people who fight hurricanes with their hearts, and are still in God’s grace. We see that grace when they dance or dream or defend their island. In their connection with the earth, which so many others have lost. In the humble way, without fanfare or klieg lights or press conferences, that they pass their traditions onto their children.”
