A list of reasons why I love the Puerto Rican Day Parade:
- Salsa blasting on every corner starting at 8am.
- The cars decked out in flags (shout out to the Papa John’s delivery car I saw repping HARD).
- The viejitos who bring their claves everywhere because you never know when impromptu percussion will be v. necessary.
- That I-just-drank-my-third-nutcracker feeling.
- This video of Bobby Flay dancing to Big Pun:
Thank you New York. I love you.
