New York Events: The National Puerto Rican Day Parade is one of the Few Events in New York that Dedicates an Entire Day of Fun to the Puerto Rican Culture and it Takes Place Close to Times Square Hotels like The Paramount.
In 2013, the National Puerto Rican Day Parade celebrates Puerto Ricans and higher education, and it is one of the most beloved New York Events for Puerto Ricans and the entire New York Community.
In celebration of their community, country and culture, more than 80,000 Puerto Ricans march from 44th to 86th Streets in Manhattan as part of the annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade - one of the most fun New York Events of the year. Lively doesn’t even begin to describe the National Puerto Rican Day Parade, which welcomes nearly 3 million spectators every year and includes energetic musical performances, floats, and a host of Puerto Rican celebrities.
Through education, the greater community continues to progress. Higher education is a source of empowerment that improves the social and financial conditions of Puerto Ricans aspiring to better their lives. The Parade’s theme for 2013 showcases the educational achievements of Puerto Ricans and continues to encourage growth in the community.

In addition to the annual Parade on Fifth Avenue, the Board of Directors that oversees the National Puerto Rican Day Parade hosts many Events in New York throughout the year in accordance with the organization’s missions and goals.
Last year, the National Puerto Rican Day Parade went green for the first time, and focused on the environment. The Parade celebrated the natural beauty of Puerto Rico by recognizing the “Encanto” of the Island and its people who depend on a future with clean air and water, and green places to play and pray. The organizers of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade are concerned about the high asthma rate within the Puerto Rican community and want to focus on the environmental causes of this epidemic.
Additional concerns about global warming and the resulting sea level rise, which have the potential to change the Island and affect the beauty of the Island, mean that the National Puerto Rican Day Parade will abide by strict Environmental Policy this year as well. This policy states that waste reduction via recycling, composting, reduced energy and materials practices, and other efforts are at the forefront of planning and celebratory activities for the Parade.
