The 46th Anniversary of the annual parade. Originally known as the Puerto Rican Day Parade and now recognized as the Wilmington Hispanic Parade celebrating Hispanic Heritage. This event kicks off the days long event. It’s the official opener for the annual Wilmington Festival Hispano that immediately follows at the Wilmington Riverfront. Join thousands of Delaware and Tri-State area patrons at the largest gathering in our North Delaware community to bring tribute to Hispanic Heritage. We will celebrate local heroes as a tribute to 9/11. Our event pays tribute to LEGACY sponsors and volunteers who have kept this tradition alive thanks to the support of the City of Wilmington, County, State and local Community Sponsors!
