The Connecticut Puerto Rican State Parade

This celebration of the culture of Puerto Rican residents of Connecticut takes place in various cities and communities throughout the state. The parade is preceded by beauty pageants, cultural presentations, flag-raisings, a banquet, and visits from Puerto Rican government officials, and is followed by a large festival. The 36-year-old June event draws over 100,000 visitors annually.
