On Sunday, May 22, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. celebrated the grand finale of Bronx Week 2011 hosting a parade for which hundreds of students from dozens of Bronx schools and youth organizations marched down Mosholu Parkway. The new members of the Bronx Walk of Fame, Chazz Palminteri, Irene Cara, Joy Bryant, and Charles Latibeaudiere, paraded along Mosholu Parkway after the unveiling of the plaques that now carry their names on the Grand Concourse.
After the parade, hundreds of residents enjoyed the Bronx Week Food, Art & Music Festival, which featured popular restaurants, arts & crafts, the Bronx Arm Wrestling Championship, and games and activities for kids. At the main stage, Bronxites danced with the great performances of the hip hop legends Big Daddy Kane and Force MD’s, the bachata group Xtreme, and the salsa band Conjunto Imagen, among many other local artists.
