53rd Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade Features Music, Pride, Police And Rain



            By Black Radio Network Staff
    New York - The 53rd annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade worked its way up New York's Fifth Avenue yesterday with tens of thousands of marchers and millions of viewers.
    Virtually wherever you looked, New York Police officers were on hand.  In the past, the parade, NY's largest, was accompanied with some violence.  While no major incidents were reported, the NYPD arrested about three dozen gang members, including some members of the Latin Kings, who attempted to join the line of march.
    Rain showers during the the last hours of the parade failed to damper the festivities.  Parade King Marc Anthony and wife Jennifer Lopez thrilled the celebrants, who wildy waived Puerto Rico's red, white and blue flag.  Near the end of the parade, the car battery in which Anthony and Lopez rode died and the famous pair were relegated to continue in a golf cart.
