Boricua Celebrates Jun 18, 2011
One parade you don't wanna miss around the June time frame here in Chicago. The city of Humboldt Park (Chicago) really knows how to celebrate the Puerto Rican heritage and embrace it through food, music, dancing, laughing, shouting, and true excitement.
As the people come out way hours of the morning, setting up for all the floats that soon brighten our days. They prep for the thousands of people to visit and celebrate with them. Streets are shut down for the day, and usually throughout the week too for other celebrations. Tents go up for the local business folks, whom love to sell their gifts, such as Puerto Rican flags, towels, hats, shirts, and most of all F O O D! You can't miss out on the Cuchifritos, Sofrito, Lechon, Jibraritos, and many other favorites they like to get down on.
Everything is pretty cheap, and enjoyable especially when memories of what it's like to celebrate with true Boricua's!
Parking is first come first serve and you will soon find out that when there are signs not to park there, best bet is to "Not" do it. You may find yourself returning to no vehicle waiting on you. Funny but true.
