Bronx Dominican Day Parade
- stein0726, CNN iReport producer
Local city and state officials walked along side dancers and marches which included the Bronx Borough president Ruben Diaz Jr.
Numerous floats with live music, dancers, baton twirling groups and marching bands took part in the parade. The very colorful “Diablo Cojuelo” (mischievous devil) ran through the parade walloping people with inflated pig or cow bladders & whips. These costumes are part of Carnival. The masks mostly have horns and elaborate facial features to symbolize spiritual, supernatural and unknown spirit world entities.
