"We want people to feel good about their neighborhood and when they do, they do right by their neighborhood to strengthen communities, and that's what the day is," said Councilman Andy King.

Bronx residents also had the opportunity to take free medical exams at the fair and watch Grammy Award-winning artist and minister Donnie McClurkin perform.
