HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) - The Puerto Rican flag was front and center during Sunday's 4th annual Hispanic parade through downtown Holyoke.

Puerto Rican pride was in all it's glory as thousands of Latinos' turned out to salute the Puerto Rican flag and celebrate the culture they have brought to western Massachusetts.

"It's to bring all Hispanic families together. That's why they call it el grande family, and it's tied in with the festival we're having over this weekend in Springdale park," said Sylvia Robello of Holyoke.

It was a gala weekend filled with Hispanic pride that unites the community.
