Sunday, July 27, 2014. Gary Gilbert writes: "The parade was a success with
lots of different groups represented as well as many elected officials,
Aleida. Senator Chuck Schumer, Assembly member Michael DenDekker (whom I
work for), Assembly member Jeff Aubry, Senaor José Peralta, Assembly member
Francisco Moya's people. Judge Carmen Velásquez was on the side of the
street. Judges running for the supreme court of queens are not allowed to
campaign, I think. City Council Member Danny Dromm was marching too. Manny
Pérez from DenDekker's office was there. He is Colombian. Lots of lovely
costumes and people of all ages marching, including dogs. Miss Columbia, who
has a parrot and a dog, was there. He is very popular with the politicians.
Lots of people showed up to view the parade and the weather was okay. No
rain, even though we thought we would get thunderstorms."
