A huge celebration filled the streets of downtown Orlando on Saturday as thousands of people gathered for the third annual Florida Puerto Rican Parade and Festival.
Puerto Rican pride shined bright during the event with dancing, music and much more.
The theme for this year's parade was healthcare, so Puerto Ricans also got a chance to receive important health services over at Orlando City Hall.

- UCF sugar babies talk sugar daddy foot fetish, arrangements netting up to $500 a date
- Thousands attend 3rd annual Florida Puerto Rican Parade in Orlando
- 11-month-old burned to death in scalding water, mother arrested
People from the island and throughout Central Florida came out to see all the excitement.
The parade kicked off at the corner of Orange Avenue and Concord Street as floats and marchers made their way down Orange Avenue to the Doctor Philips Center for the Performing Arts.
Just like last year, there were meetup spots to watch the parade with people from your hometown.
For example, Guayama is right at the start of the parade, near Amelia Street; Bayamon is near Robinson Street; and San Juan is almost at the end of the parade near South Street.
