    The parade will start at Portuguese Square (Concord Avenue) in Somerville and work its way down Cambridge Street through Inman Square to its ending location in front of St. Anthony's Church at the corner of Cambridge Street and Cardinal Medeiros Avenue. The parade will include a variety of colorful floats, bands, and marching groups from various Portuguese communities across Massachusetts. A block party will follow immediately featuring entertainment and vendors selling Portuguese delicacies and other regional products. As in previous years, the Day of Portugal Parade will take place in the month of June, on the 17th, in the area of Cambridge and Somerville, where we have a significant Portuguese and Portuguese American community. Year after year it attracts a growing number of participants and spectators from Massachusetts and New England, in search of Portuguese traditions and heritage. This year's event is expected to break all records with the massive participation from a significant number of Portuguese clubs and associations, as well as schools and their pupils. At the end of the Parade, there will be an opportunity for everybody to get together in a special moment of gathering around stands and booths representing companies and services with ties to the Portuguese communities, with a few additional musical surprises and other festivities.
