The New York City Hispanic Day Parade will march up Fifth Avenue this Sunday to celebrate the last few days of Hispanic Heritage Month, which is from September 14 through October 15. The Hispanic Day Parade is usually held on the Sunday before or after Columbus Day.
The parade is also referred to as the Hispanic Columbus Day Parade because it is close to the holiday. The annual NYC Hispanic Day Parade celebrates the cultures of all Spanish-speaking people of New York City, which amounts to approximately 2.5 million people.
