Puerto Rican Flag Raising Ceremony
July 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm| FREE
The Puerto Rican flag is an important symbol of pride in our heritage. During the flag raising at the City Hall Plaza, Boston recognizes our heritage and civic accomplishments and social contributions of the Puerto Rican community to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and acknowledge the opportunities that the Commonwealth has provided for our collective progress. Community members from across the State join in the event to witness the flag raising every year. The event program includes folkloric music, dance, typical food and community awards. This year we will dedicate the flag raising ceremony to distinguished individuals in recognition for their contributions and services to our community.
