Hundreds marched through Yonkers Sunday for the annual Hispanic Day Parade.
The event featured music, dancing and lots of cultural pride.
Organizers of the event say they were happy to teach children about Hispanic culture and watch a community come together to celebrate.
The grand marshal of the parade says Yonkers is leading the way for Latino culture.
"Yonkers is the city of the future because it's a city that is embracing the Hispanic community," said Eliseer Guzman, grand marshal of the parade.
The parade has been held almost every year for nearly two decades.
