For the second consecutive year, Peruvians residing in Queens, New York enjoyed the Grand National Peruvian Parade that was held on Sunday, June 28th. The parade took place on 37th Avenue between 69th and 86th streets.
The Grand National Peruvian Parade was organized by the International Peruvian Festival (IPF), a nonprofit organization that works to promote Peruvian culture and folklore. Included in the festival were Peruvians, South Americans and many New Yorkers from different cultural backgrounds.
The parade attracted more than 3,000 spectators along its route as well as several local politicians and representatives from the community.
Several sponsors contributed to making the parade a big success including the personal injury law firm of Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC. The firm enjoyed the opportunity to be one of the official parade sponsors, and celebrate with all the Peruvian and Hispanic communities along the parade route.
Rodolfo Flores, CEO of International Peruvian Festival, commented: “Many thanks to the valuable participation of the firm of Jacob Oresky & Associates, who were the official sponsors and to other companies that also contributed significantly to the success of the second Peruvian Parade of Queens.”
Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC will continue to support the Peruvian community in New York not only through the Peruvian International Festival, but also with their support of other events in the Hispanic communities in New York.
