El Día de Hispanidad

Here in New York on the Sunday before Columbus day (this year Oct. 12) there's a really good parade on 5th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. The Día de Hispanidad parade is a whole lot more fun than most parades. Groups from all the Spanish speaking nations dress up in traditional costumes. Some have their own bands and dance native dances: Cumbia, Tango, Cha Cha,Merengue, etc. Peru and Bolivia usually have the most elaborate presentiations and the best dancing and outfits (although Panama is pretty good too,) and each year Mexico gives bigger presentations.Is El Día de Hispanidad celebrated in other nations? Is there a similar presentation is Spain? Aquí en Nueva York en el domingo antes del Día de Colon hay un un muy buen desfile en la quinta avenida en en centro de manhattan. El defile de hispanidad es más divertido que la mayoría de los defiles comunes en estaciudad. Grupos de todos las naciones hispanoparlantes se visten en su ropatradicional. Algunos vienen acompañdos por conjuntos musicalesy bailan las danzas de sus paises:La Cumbia, El Tango, La Cha Cha, El Merengue, ect... Peru y Bolivia suela dar las mejores presentaciones de ropa y danzas, pero Panama ofrece buena competición, y cada año la presentación de Mexico crece más.Quisiera saber si El Día de Hispanidad está celebrado en otros paises y si en España esiste una celebración semejante.

Me suena muy bien el desfile. ¡Lástima no pueda ir!

No hay desfiles ni fanfarria.......algunos negocios cuyos dueños son Hispanos o Latinos o ?? cierran sus puertas. Es todo. Pero durante el verano se celebra la Fiesta Mexicana aunque ya todos los países de Latino America se han juntado y la fiesta es muy colorida y divertida.

Lo raro es que el día proximo (este año 13 de octubre) tenemos el desfilede Columbus Day. Ese desfile es aburridor cuando se compara con el desofile de la hispanidad pero recibe mucha publicidad en las notícias locales

I was born in Canada. My parents are native to China.
Does Día de la Hispanidad mean "Spanish Day?"
Well, I now understand it.

It really means the day of Hispanic culture which is a very positive way
of looking at Columbus Day and the subsequent Spanish conquest of the Americas which is a controversial subject matter especially in Peru and Mexico. The positive thing that cannot be denied about the conquest is the rich new creole/mestizo culture that it gave birth to. Latin America is a wonderful mix of Spanish, Native American, African, Asian and North
American culture. El Día de Hispanidad or Día de la Rasa celebrates this phenomenon.
