Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Lead Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade

Marc Anthony led off as the parade’s “international godfather” with gorgeous wife J-Lo at his side. Originally telenovela star Osvaldo Rios was slated to lead the march, but withdrew after a domestic violence conviction for assaulting his girlfriend caused outrage over his participation.

The annual Puerto Rican Day Parade started at 11 AM and marches from 44th Street to 86th street. This year the parade and celebration were shortened to five hours instead of seven and the route cut down by seven blocks.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Helping Build a Better Community.”
