This 2018 National Puerto Rican Day Parade is led by the award-winning actor Esaí Morales as Grand Marshal. Born in Brooklyn, Morales’ screen credits include roles in films like “La Bamba” and “My Family/Mi Familia”, as well as television series like “Chicago PD,” “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” and “Ozark.” Over his 35-year career, Morales has sought to challenge the stereotypical portrayal of Latinos in television and film, and he now serves on the national board for SAG-AFTRA.
The Puerto Rican Day Parade tends to draw a million or more attendees, and the 61st annual is poised to have extra significance for many New Yorkers, coming just months after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island.
Here, all of our coverage of the annual event, including why Brooklyn-born actor Esai Morales is particularly honored to be this year’s grand marshal.
NEW YORK — The National Puerto Rican Parade has kicked off in New York City with participants honoring heroes who have been helping the island recover from the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
The celebration on Sunday on Fifth Avenue featured floats, musicians and brightly colored costumes. Some parade-goers draped Puerto Rican flags over their shoulders.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo was among the dignitaries on hand for the event.
Organizers say the parade will be honoring first responders and others who stepped up to help with both emergency efforts and ongoing recovery work.
