The Portugal Day Races take place every year around the first or second Sunday of June, usually the closest one to the Portuguese national holiday. The race started in 1979 and has been organized by Lar Dos Leos (Den of Lions) since then. Each year runners/walkers from the surrounding area, Portuguese or not, gather and race in the historic Ironbound section, celebrating Portuguese-American culture.
