Puerto Rican Day Parade

Thousands of spectators lined Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on Sunday for the National Puerto Rican Day Parade — a 61-year tradition honoring the U.S. territory but clouded this year by still-raw emotions over the federal response to Hurricane Maria.

Many along the parade route waved flags and wore hats and clothes to show their Puerto Rican pride. Onlookers cheered as marching bands, floats, politicians and other public officials made their way along Fifth Avenue to the Upper East Side along the edge of Central Park.
