40th annual Dominican Day Parade kicks off in NYC
The 40th annual Dominican Day parade was in full swing on Sunday.
The parade kicked off just after 1 p.m. after the official ribbon cutting. Revelers and proud Dominicans came together to march down Sixth Avenue in Manhattan to celebrate Dominican culture and heritage.
Floats, dancing, music and Dominican flags flooded the streets.
"The Dominican culture is very active, very competitive, it's very dynamic," said reveler Fanny Andrade.
Dominicans make roughly one-third of the Latino population in New York City, according to city data.
