14th Annual Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade:
Saturday August 20th,  2016


 
 
A note from our President
 
 
       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 (Mexicans, Dominicans, Cubans, Colombians, and others from the Caribbean, Central American and South American Hispanic countries) continues to grow in the Western New York area, we feel that by enhancing our name, all those groups will feel the pride in raising their flags, and in sharing in their cultural costumes, music and food when participating in a wonderful celebration of Hispanic Heritage.

Last year there were over 2,000 participants representing over 70 organizations from throughout Western New York. We look forward to this year’s events with great excitement as more groups participate and celebrate.

We invite everyone to mark their calendars and come celebrate the

14h Annual Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade of WNY, Saturday, August 20th, 2016 starting at 1:00pm in front of Buffalo City Hall and marching north on Niagara Street (Avenida San Juan).
There will be amusement rides, great food and a free concert immediately following at LaSalle Park, on Buffalo’s beautiful waterfront. 
 
Sincerely,
 

 President
