For Columbus Day, many Hispanics celebrate their heritage. People love to call parades colorful, but this parade really is colorful. People from different Spanish-speaking countries showcase traditional costumes. It is a celebration of Hispanic pride. Enjoy scenes from El Desfile de la Hispanidad in Manhattan.
