**NEWARK, NJ (Hotwire News) - Puerto Ricans will be celebrating in The Garden State come September of 2017 as summer will come to an end during the first month of the new school year for some students in the City of Newark, NJ, where there's a huge Latino-Puerto Rican population.

Last week on Sunday, June 11, Newark Ricans rode the NJ Transit to the Big Apple in the NYC to watch the 60th annual New York National Puerto Rican Day Parade which brought in 2 million Boricuas nationwide including Puerto Rico, who the majority on that same day of the NYC Parade voted PR to become state-hood as the 51st state of the U.S.

But that deal might not go through if President Donald Trump gets his way by not accepting the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico as the 51st state dealing with financial debt crisis back on the island.

Other Puerto Rican Parade festivals will be happening throughout the summer in from now til Labor Day which is the official end of summer; but not in the City of Newark where Puerto Rican will represent their flag, pride & culture before fall arrives. What a way to end the 2017 season of Puerto Rican festivals nationwide. The 56th annual Newark Puerto Rican Parade & Festival begins Sunday, September 17 starting @ 12 noon et.  YO SOY BORICUA -- PA'QUE TU LO SEPAS!!
