This Week, We're all Puerto Rican

Everyone in New York knows when the Puerto Rican Day Parade is happening: neighborhoods around the city are festooned with the Puerto Rican flag, cars fly the Puerto Rican colors proudly and there's a lot more red white and blue all over.  But did you know that there are fun and games leading up to Sunday's giant fiesta?

Some invite-only events are happening Wednesday and Thursday, but starting Friday, June 11 the public can get in on the fun by heading over to Roberto Clemente State Park in the Bronx for Juegos Boricuas (or Boricuan games), including but not limited to a dominoes tournament on Friday and Saturday. Music is promised at Roberto Clemente State Park for Saturday, along with more Juegos.  

And of course the parade is the grand finale, kicking off around 11AM and heading up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 86th Streets. 

When: June 11-13, 2010
Where: Roberto Clemente State Park (West Tremont Avenue and Matthewson Road), Parade only- Fifth Ave between 44th and 86th.
