HISPANIC DAY PARADE
Last Sunday was the 43rd Annual HISPANIC DAY PARADE on 5th Avenue from 44th Street to 72nd Street. The Hispanic Day Parade is in celebration of Hispanic unity and the cultural and social diversity of the groups that fit under that one label.The Sunday Parade along Fifth Avenue is the highlight of the New York Hispanic Parade events. There was extensive media coverage by way of live and delayed telecast, English and Spanish television, and live radio coverage. Like other parades, there is an impressive number of colorful community contingencies, floats, marching bands and musical groups which provides a festive and lively mood to the parade.
