Rican weekend

Since I don’t live anywhere near New York, this is news to me:

For millions of Puerto Ricans in NYC this weekend is Rican Weekend, a weekend full of events about celebrating Puerto Rican culture and pride.


The theme of this year’s parade is “Boricuas – We Vote, We Count”, reminding Ricans and no doubt politicians that Puerto Ricans are citizens who vote (unless of course you live in Puerto Rico and want to vote for the U.S. President, but that’s a whole other article).

For additional information, visit the National Puerto Rican Day Parade site.
