The Boogie Down’s Boricua pride was on full display at this year’s Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade. Commemorating 30 years, the annual parade hosted by the Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade, Inc. and La Sorsa Automotive Group was held on Sunday, June 5 at the Grand Concourse. The day’s inclement weather did not deter Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade pageant winners, local elected officials, residents and parade groups from celebrating. The parade procession stretched from East 192nd Street’s Poe Cottage to Van Cortlandt Avenue East.
