Several thousand Bronxites turned out for the 10th Annual Cinco De Mayo Festival in Belmont, held this year on Saturday, May 3 along Crescent Avenue. Children enjoyed a free air-ride, games, contests and face painting. Dozens of vendors sold all kinds of Mexican delicacies. A live Marina chi band performed and X 96.3 FM aired the event live. The event is a collaboration between the office of the Bronx Borough President's office and the Mexican-American community. The event was founded in 2005 by El Grupo Unidos.
