Concilio would like to take a moment to acknowledge all the hard work and preparation given to all the Puerto Rican Day Parade Participants this year.  We are appreciative that, despite the change in date due to the World Meeting of Families and the challenges with the weather this year, all of the groups came to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway ready to march with pride.  Thank you for your commitment, performance, and dedication to the Puerto Rican and Latino Communities of Philadelphia.

We celebrated Our Journey: from Puerto Rico to Philadelphia, with orgullo – and we ask all of our participants to save the date for November 6, 2015, for the Annual Closing Ceremony for the Puerto Rican Festival Events to celebrate our participants and volunteers for our successful events of 2015. Thank you also to our elected officials in attendance, including: Philadelphia City Council Members David Oh, Bill Greenlee, Wilson Good, Jr., Maria Q. Sanchez; District Attorney Seth Williams; Mayoral Candidate Jim Kenney; State Representative Angel Cruz and State Senator Christine Tartaglione.

Thank you to all of our participants:
