THE BRONX - Excitement is building as the borough gears up for the 25th Annual Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade.

Organizers gathered Wednesday morning to commemorate those working behind the scenes to get ready for the June 3 event, which will be changed up to mark the quarter-century milestone.

Officials say the start of the parade will be at the corner of 192nd Street and the Grand Concourse, and will head up to Van Cortland Avenue East.
