WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
By Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz
District 32 Bronx County, New York
You should know that the Morrison Avenue Festival will take place on Saturday, August 20, 2016 from 12:00 PM until 7:00 PM on Morrison Avenue between Westchester and Watson Avenues in Bronx County.
It is important for you to know that 15 years ago, then Assemblyman Ruben Diaz, Jr. created this Morrison Avenue Festival for families and children to gather and enjoy an outdoor day of music and live entertainment, free children’s games, and food sold by local vendors.
You should also know that when Assemblyman Marcos Crespo was elected to replace Ruben Diaz, Jr., Assemblyman Crespo continued the tradition of celebrating the Morrison Avenue Festival, which has grown to attract more than 10,000 people.
For the past several years, the Morrison Avenue Festival has been coordinated by Freddy Perez Entertainment, who this year, has contracted Tito Rojas "El Gallo" and Nayibe La Gitana among other attractions.
I look forward to another successful Morrison Avenue Festival, and to seeing our Bronx families and children enjoy this very special event.
I am Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz, and this is what you should know.
