Day of Instructions


We invite you to participate in the 2018 Puerto Rican Day Parade! This year’s theme is “Puerto Rico Se Levanta!” which means “Puerto Rico Rises!”. We encourage you to keep this theme in mind as you prepare your float for this year’s parade. Our panel of judges will take a close look at each float, how it aligns with our theme and the work behind the effort. All winners will be announces after the parade and will receive an award and prize.
