The Grand Concourse featured the sounds of Quisqueya today. Situated in the heart of the fastest growing Dominican community in New York City, the West Bronx parade rivals the Midtown-Manhattan celebration in excitement and attendance with its more home town carnival atmosphere. Saludos, Mama Juana!

The merengue and bachata both started at 12 noon and the parade ran south on the Grand Concourse Blvd from E. Tremont Ave to E. 167th Street, steps away from Yankee Stadium.

Que Viva La Vigen De Alta Gracia!

The National Weather Service says temperatures will begin to ease, but are expected remain in the 90s.
