This Sunday is the 2016 Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade

See the list of street closures happening as a result of the parade route

On Sunday, June 12th, the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade will vaunt up Fifth Avenue as the event marks its 59th year of celebrating the heritage, culture, and people of Puerto Rico. The recurring theme, "One Nation, Many Voices," will be honored this year by celebrity honorees that include the designated parade king, New York Knicks star, Carmelo Anthony, designated queen Rosario Dawson, grand marshal, singer Ednita Nazario, actor Adam Lopez, and many more. The Daily News reports that 100,000 people will take place in the parade itself, with about 1.5 million more cheering from along the sides.
