BX celebrates Parranda Con Paranda

The second annual Parranda Con Paranda celebration was held in the Bronx yesterday.



The event was held in celebration of the Winter Solstice, and included the performance of different musical customs and even had food catered from a local business.



Elena Martinez from The Bronx Music Heritage Center told News 12 that she hopes the traditional music and dancing performed at the celebration will remind residents in the community about the rich history of the Bronx.



The event also accepted donations for Bronx Rising, which will then be handed out to kids in a couple of weeks.
