The Bronx Celebrates America

INDEPENDENCE DAY CAME five days early in the Bronx as fireworks light up the night sky on June 29 at the holiday celebration held at Orchard Beach. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. hosted the yearly gathering, which attracted hundreds of spectators. Food vendors were on hand, and the annual Bronx Empanada Eating Contest did not disappoint.
