Philadelphia's Puerto Rican Day Parade is the "Crown Jewel" of the Puerto Rican Festival. It was one of the first ethnic parades televised in Philadelphia by WPVI-TV Channel 6 (ABC affiliate). Wally Kennedy and Diego Castellanos have traditionally served as the hosts for the televised portion of the parade, which allows an additional 30,000 viewers to tune in for a display of cultural pride. Youth groups, community organizations, schools, corporate sponsors and many others across the tri-state area participate in making this parade a showcase of Puerto Rican and Latino culture.
