THIS YEAR'S Puerto Rican Day Parade will include a series of family-friendly activities intended to avert the disorder that has followed the parade in recent years.
Mayor Nutter and other officials announced yesterday that the city will invest significant money in post-parade events, which include a concert at the Dell Music Center in Fairmount Park. Nutter said he did not yet know how much the city would investing. Community groups will contribute $50,000.
The changes were spurred by last year's controversy after Lt. Jonathan Josey was filmed striking parade-goer Aida Guzman.
