Puerto Rican Day Parade in Jersey City Marks 50th Anniversary

pr-parade-11As they have been doing for the past 50 years,the  crowds came to see a parade rain or shine on Sunday August 22nd as thousands of spectators waited patiently for the 50 Annual Jersey City Puerto Rican Day parade to get underway. Just after 1 pm it began at Lincoln Park and Kennedy Boulevard  and it ran for over 2 hours long as it made its way along Montgomery street to its final destination -City Hall on Grove Street in Downtown Jersey City. While the rain came down hard at times the spectators and parade marches waved Puerto Rican flags pr-parade-15and yelled back and forth to each other “Puerto Rico” “Puerto Rico.” 

Our River View Observer photographer Newsboi was there to capture the days event.
