The annual Bronx Dominican Parade celebrated Dominican-American heritage along the Grand Concourse from East Tremont Avenue to East 166th Street on Sunday, July 26. Revelers waving Dominican flags and wearing colorful costumes added a dash of pizzazz to what is the one of the borough’s most important parades. Mayor de Blasio, Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and many other elected officials marched.

Here’s just one of the many costumed parade marchers along the route.
