The third annual Florida Puerto Rican Parade and Festival is returning to downtown Orlando on April 27, so get ready to hear a lot of "Wepa!"

The Saturday parade starts at the intersection of Orange Avenue and Concord Street and ends with a festival on the Seneff Arts Plaza at 445 S. Magnolia Ave., according to organizers.



The free festival will have delicious food, craft vendors and live music from multiple acts, including J Alvarez, Juan Luis Juancho, Nio Garcia, Casper "El Magico," Julio Cesar Sanabria, Victor Sanabria, Jincho El Rustico, Elysanij and many more.

This year's parade is dedicated to Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolón, the city's first Hispanic police chief who is also from Puerto Rico.
