Orchard Beach Concert Series returns to the Bronx for summer Sundays

Posted: Updated:
ORCHARD BEACH -

Music lovers flocked to Orchard Beach Sunday for the return of the area’s annual summer concert series.

The Orchard Beach Concert Series includes genres like salsa, bomba, plena and more.

Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. says he revived the concert series 10 years ago.

"It's a great way for people to come together after a hard week's work as one big Bronx happy family," he says.

Residents say they come to the beach because they enjoy the sense of community that the music brings out of everyone.

New concerts will take place every Sunday through August.
