The Puerto Rican Hispanic Day Parade took place in Brentwood on June 9, 2019. Between a mariachi band, a Mexican hat dance, or any of the other dozens of cultural showcases, this parade has performances that anyone can enjoy. I got to the parade around 7 AM to set up and get ready and the parade kicked off at noon. Word of advice: always stretch your legs before walking in a parade.
