Dominican Day Parade celebrated in NYC

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- Organizers of the Dominican Day Parade say this year's celebration is all about uplifting the community following the COVID-19 pandemic.

WABC-TV is a proud sponsor of the parade, which was streamed live across all of our platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV.

The parade had a special theme: Moving forward. Organizers say each of the honorees played a role in advancing the Dominican community and their own communities by exemplifying perseverance, resiliency, growth and transformation.

They say these attributes will lead us to victory during these though times.

The winners of the National Dominican Day Parade scholarships were announced at a gala on Friday night. They also participated in the parade on Sunday.

Last year's scholarship recipients were also honored this year since a gala was not held last year due to the pandemic.

Students say the scholarships are an opportunity to help them excel in their future ventures.

The organization says it has already helped hundreds of students, and prides itself in guiding future generations to achieve their dreams.

The 2022 Gala will be held Friday, August 12, 2022 and the 2022 parade will be Sunday, August 14, 2022.
