Nearly Canceled, Historic Puerto Rican Day Parade Will Continue in Brentwood

For the past 45 years, the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade in Brentwood has served as a celebration of boricua and Latino heritage for all residents, Puerto Rican, Latino, or otherwise. But the parade was nearly canceled this year when its past sponsor, the the non-profit organization Adelante, couldn’t procure the necessary funding.

Enter Assemblymember Phil Ramos and the non-profit theater group Teatro Yerbabruja, who said at a press conference today that they’ll keep the parade alive and fundraise to support it.
