Hundreds of families came out to The Children’s Aid Society’s Bronx Family Center last week for Arts and Culture Day on May 16th as part of the Annual Bronx Week Celebration. The week-long celebration, sponsored by Bronx Borough President Diaz, Jr. and the Bronx Tourism Council, showcased the Bronx community’s diverse culture and most importantly, its people who proudly call themselves, Bronxites.

Attendees were able to access many different resources at Arts and Culture Day such as free blood pressure and mental health screenings, Foster Care recruitment and health insurance information. John Moncrief, the Community Liaison from Assembly Member Eric Stevenson’s office, provided information on how his office serves its constituents and the resources provided.

The fun-filled event also had many activities for the younger crowd such as face painting, a bouncy house and raffles all while enjoying a tasty hotdog and sweet cotton candy. There was even a show-stopping dance performance by the C.S. 61 Dancers. C.S. 61 is a Children’s Aid Community School located in the South Bronx. The performance was reflective of the amazing talent and different cultures in the Bronx.

Needless to say, The Children’s Aid Society’s Bronx Week celebration was once again a success and more importantly a celebratory and rewarding experience for the families and children of the Bronx.
