Nikki Alva, Grupo Mania, Trinere, Michael Stuart, Frankie Negron, Huey Dunbar, Boriqua Posse, Safire and Coro are among this year’s musical performances.
The organizers stated that this year’s procession on Paseo Boricua will commemorate the passing of Puerto Rican poet and reporter Juan Antonio Corretjer, who passed away this year, as well as the 50th anniversary of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center.
The event coordinators stated that the earnings will aid the Tu Casa Project, a charitable institution that provides youth initiatives, business prospects, financial literacy, and various other amenities.
Benefactors and officials, along with neighbors, are invited to come to the afternoon event on Thursday at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Culture and Arts, located at St. Division W. 3015, for the unveiling.
The celebration of this year’s Puerto Rican festival and parade held an event that included officials from Jessie Fuentes Ald. 26th, as well as remarks and performances from Corazón De Bombera Escuelita La. The festival featured authentic Puerto Rican food and drinks, as well as spots in the local restaurant scene, like Restaurant Ponce, that showcased the vibrant bomba music and dance.
Expressing gratitude to event producers Michelle and Melissa Gomez, Fuentes stated, “We are anticipating a truly splendid week dedicated to embracing our Puerto Rican heritage and embracing our unique identity.”
We are speaking about artists who come from the island, but we are also talking about people who can build casitas and artists who can bless our stage with merengue or salsa. We are not just talking about food.
The last event of the year ended in frustration for about 70 attendees as cars parked along Humboldt, the park’s namesake, were towed for violating parking restrictions.
Fuentes did not promptly answer a query regarding parking following the Thursday afternoon event.
