NEW YORK - After a three-year absence because of Covid, today the 40th National Dominican Day Parade marched smartly up New York's Avenue of the Americas today. The weather was beautiful and the thousands of participants and observers all had smiles on their faces.

The parade was started to celebrate the Dominican culture, traditions and folklore.

This year's parade carried the theme of Uplifting, Empowering & Elevating the Dominican Legacy. Floats and carnival characters such as the "little devils" and "steal the chicken" were featured as were hundreds and Dominican flags and music.

New York City reportedly hosts the largest Dominican population in the United States.
