Entertainment legend Rita Moreno will serve as grand marshal for the 2015 National Puerto Rican Day Parade, organizers said Monday.

The star of stage and silver screen — and one of a handful to have won an Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy — will headline the annual march along Fifth Ave. on June 14. Moreno, 83, and originally from Humacao, will march along with the parade king and salsa star Victor Manuelle.

Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, star and creator of the upcoming Broadway musical “Hamilton,” is being honored for his contributions to American theater.

This year’s theme is “One Community, Many Voices.”
