Carnaval Del Boulevard
The Carnaval Del Boulevard is a Dominican festival that takes place on St. Nicholas Avenue (Juan Pablo Duarte Boulevard). Mayoral candidates attended the sixth annual Carnaval in 2005, showing the growing importance of this festival.

28 July 2005, Manhattan Times, pg. 11:
This year, the famous Dominican producer and television personality Rafael Coplan de los Santos will join the festivities as King of the Carnaval. After the parade along the boulevard, organizers have planned a festival where local artists can perform and that will include music and vendors at W. 193rd Street.

The 6th Annual Carnaval Del Boulevard is Sun., July 31 from noon to 8 p.m. starting at W. 170th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue (AKA Juan Pablo Duarte Boulevard).
