Annual Bronx Cultural Arts Festival held along 152nd Street in Melrose

The Bronx Cultural and Arts Festival kicked off on East 152nd Street and Jackson Avenue Saturday afternoon.



Vendors selling food, arts and crafts and colorful T-shirts lined streets for the celebration that has been going on since 1995.



Residents say the festival is a wonderful way to get the family together and get a good dose of culture.



The event serves as a precursor to the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in Manhattan on June 8.
