WEPA!!!  This Sunday, June 9th the 2013 National Puerto Rican Day Parade celebrates their 56th annual event held in New York City.  This year will make it the 18th event as a National Organization.

This has become an event for many of us Harlemites to look forward to every year with it’s rich culture, live music and festive celebrations.  The Parade starts at 11am along 5th Avenue from 44th Street to 79th Street.  After the Parade finishes the party will continue uptown in East Harlem, West Harlem and all around!  Check your local venues for planned events throughout Harlem honoring Puerto Rican Pride and feel free to post in our “comments” section below, if you would like to promote an event.  Here are 2 different outdoor music events we recently blogged about happening this Sunday  to check out after the parade.
