The 2022 theme: “!Que Dulce es la Vida – How Sweet is Life!” – Participants are to decorate their float in a sweet them rich in color and life! And of course, urged to toss some candy to spectators! Los Hermanos Familia also encourages participants to align with “Our objective is strengthening families, and building community,” said Christy Martinez-Garcia, Parade Chair. “This year we are urging schools and organizations and families to share the richness of their existence, their history, and prepare floats that are rich in color. By especially showcasing the contributions of our Mexican American and Hispanic community, we promote their contributions.” The Hispanic community encourages veterans, family members, role models, schools, athletes, marching bands, small and corporate businesses, etc. to be included.
