Some FAQs about the traditional Puerto Rican Parade in Hartford CT 2021
What is a chinchorreo?
A Chinchorreo is when a group of people go to a small kiosk, restaurant, or bar everyone hangs out at to eat, drink, dance and have fun with family and friends. It’s like bar hoping in America but this one included food.
Some of the foods from a Chinchorro are the famous alcapurrias, empanadillas, relleno de papa, bacalaos, and others types of entrees from the gastronomy of Puerto Rico.
Hartford organizers are adapting the usual Puerto Rican Day Parade for a different time.
What’s the meaning of this year’s caravan?
“We are replacing the parade this year with a caravan…it’s going to be different, not like before, but we’re still going to continue promoting our culture,” explains Sammy Vega, President of the CICD. “When I say different, we’re still going to continue with music, salsa and food.”
The point of bringing this modified parade back to the streets of Hartford is to give the community some fun and excitement, but it’s also to spread the message about the vaccine and to honor essential workers like healthcare heroes and teachers.
