Senator José M. Serrano today marched in the 2010 Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City, along with his father, Congressman José E. Serrano (pictured above).  Every year, the parade, which celebrates Puerto Rican heritage and culture, attracts over one million people to Fifth Avenue.

“Puerto Ricans have made tremendous contributions to virtually every field in New York, and the country at large,” said Senator Serrano.  “The parade is a yearly opportunity to celebrate our current accomplishments, while paying homage to those who paved the way for the great strides that we have made as a community.”

"This is an amazing event that displays the uniqueness of the Puerto Rican people, while exhibiting the unity of the New York City population as a whole. I will, of course, be returning next year to proudly wave the great Puerto Rican flag.”
