THE BRONX - The 7th annual Ghana National Parade was held Saturday in Crotona Park. 

The large Ghanaian community in the Bronx celebrated their culture with traditional food and performances. 

Organizers put this parade on every year because they say it's important to hold on to their traditions from back home.

The prince of Ghana was also honored as part of the festivities. 

The celebrations will continue next weekend.
