Plans have been revealed for the 2014 Springfield Puerto Rican parade.
On Wednesday afternoon, the planning committee hosted a community partner reception at the Santander Bank Building in downtown Springfield.
The Springfield Puerto Rican parade was organized by the Puerto Rican cultural center.
Organizers said the parade will have a deep focus on inclusiveness while honoring Springfield's Puerto Rican community's history.
"We feel as a committee that one of our strengths of the region is diversity and the riches we've had in diversity, and if we're going to move and prosper as a community, we're have to do it together," committee member Ed Nunez said.
This year's parade will be held on Sept. 15 and will take place along Main Street in downtown Springfield.
