Bronx Dominican Parade & Festival Duartino

I headed up to the Concourse and Claremont Village neighborhoods of the Bronx on Sunday to watch the Bronx Dominican Parade. The Bronx Dominican Parade is in its 28th year [started 1990] and is not to be confused with the Manhattan / Washington Heights Dominican Parade which was started in 1982.

The Bronx Dominican Parade generally precedes the Washington Heights Dominican Parade by a couple of weeks - occuring at the end of July - while the Manhattan Washington Heights Dominican Parade generally occurs in alignment with the second independence by Dominicans which began around mid August. There is also a Dominican Parade in Queens in the Jackson Heights / Corona neighborhood around the same couple of weeks as these.

The Concourse and Claremont Village neighborhoods of the Bronx run, in part, along the Grand Concourse which is a wide sweeping four mile boulevard modeled after the Champs Elysees in Paris. The boulevard is lined with art deco buildings erected in the 1920's and 1930's, most of which appear to be in fairly good shape given their age. The expansive boulevard provides ample space for anyone hoping to get a front row view of the parade, even though thousands had come out to see it on this sunny summer day. Temperatures were in the 80's and it wasn't very humid, so everyone was outside enjoying the fine weather.

Bronx Dominican Parade Route & After Party

The parade route runs from East Tremont Avenue south to 167th Street, which is about 1.5 miles in length. People were lined up along the street and most were from the Bronx and the majority of them appeared to be Dominican. I spoke with a few who were proud of their heritage as both Dominicans and Bronx born Americans. The parade began at 12 noon and was expected to end before 4 pm.

 

During the Bronx Dominican Parade weekend on Friday, Saturday & Sunday July 28 - 30 from 12 noon - 6 pm the Festival Popular Duartiano - along Clay Avenue between Claremont Parkway East and East 173rd Street in the Central Bronx was in full swing. Many people were planning to saunter over to this festival following the parade. According to Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, there are over 200,000 Dominicans living in the Bronx.
