Rain didn't dampen the 30th annual celebration of Dominican heritage on Sixth Avenue last Sunday. The parade was delayed because of the rain. It started at 2 PM and ran from 37th Street to 52nd Street. The Dominican Day Parade in New York City started in 1982 as a small celebration with concerts and cultural events in Washington Heights. Organized by Dominican American community leaders, the parade which is held each August on Sixth Avenue, has grown to become a showcase of national pride with thousands of participants and spectators from different parts of the country. The images of the parade were taken with an Apple iPhone 4.
