Like every year, the community will pay tribute to compatriots who have stood out in various areas and among them are the “marshal of the parade”, a position that this year fell to the transportation commissioner of this city, Ydanis Rodríguez, while the ambassador of Equity and Inclusion will play Wendy Garcia, the highest-ranking Dominican-American in the New York Police Department.

Among those who will be recognized by their community are also the comedian Ruperto Vanderpool as the “Cacique de la Alegría” and the famous Quisqueya Group with the award for their 50 years of promoting merengue.
