I hope everybody had a great time at the Puerto Rican festivals that were held in June! If you missed out in the action it is not too late… there will be two more festivals held in August, one in Long Beach and the other in Vacaville! (for info on the festivals click here)
To hold you over in the month of July, check out these photos from the 2010 Boricua Festival in Long Beach!
Hola mi gente! I just received word that on Friday, July 1st and Saturday, July 2nd Puerto Rico will be playing against USA in a FIVB Men’s World League Volleyball match! Of course it would be great if team Puerto Rico had some Boricuas in the stands cheering them on! The events will be at Long Beach State’s Walter Pyramid. More information about this event below:

We had a great time at the El Dia De San Juan Festival in San Dimas, California! Puerto Ricans from all over took over the city of San Dimas on that festive Sunday as you could see Puerto Rican flags proudly displayed on people’s cars, trucks, clothing and accessories. Before heading to the festival we even stopped by a nearby gas station and two cars pulled up filled with Boricuas heading to the festival as well. They weren’t sure which way to go since they weren’t locals and drove all the way from Bakersfield to make it to this great event!
A sunny summer day, Puerto Ricans flocked to the shade while enjoying music hosted by MC David Love and DJ Luis Pachanga. Throughout the day people browsed the booths that sold Puerto Rican clothing, accessories, music and of course Puerto Rican food! Live music was played and the finishing touch was that of the legendary El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico who took the stage at the end of the festival.
