A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

IMG_2283_edited.jpg

The Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade Association of WNY has always sponsored events that are intended to be a celebration inclusive of all Hispanics, and to encourage pride in our Hispanic  Heritage.  As the Hispanic community (Puerto Rican, Mexican, Dominicans,  Cubans, Colombians, and others from the Caribbean, Central America and South America Hispanics) continues to grow right here in the Western New York area, it is with great pride we continue to celebrate our parade and events.

2019  was the largest parade and event in history.  We had well over 2,500 participants from 78 organizations marching with us from WNY, Rochester, Erie PA, Canada, etc. Due to Covid-19, there were delays to the LaSalle Park construction,  but we have secured a location which we plan to announce to the public in the next upcoming weeks.

 

We invite everyone to mark their calendars and come celebrate the 20th Annual Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade of WNY. To kick off our celebration we invite you to join us for a flag raising ceremony on Thursday August 11, 2022, starting at noon at Buffalo City Hall Niagara Square. 

 

Then join us Parade day Saturday August 20 @ 12 PM as we march down Avenida San Juan "Niagara Street." After the Parade we will be having a celebration from August 20-21, 2022. We look forward to seeing you.

 

Sincerely,

Charles F. Torres

President
