The parade will take place on June 30 in Sunset Park.

Parade Chairman Sean Flanagan said patriotism is a big part of the parade as it symbolizes love of God, love of neighbor and love of country. 

“Our freedoms come from God above and that’s what we want to instill to the rest of our brothers and sisters in Brooklyn,” he said. “We need to look at each other as one extended family. That’s what all Americans should turn around and do.”
