THE BRONX - Salsafest is an annual occurrence in The Bronx and on Sunday the event went to Orchard Beach. 

It was all dancing and smiles as salsa music could be heard up and down the boardwalk at Orchard Beach. 

Even though it was a scorching hot day at the beach it didn’t stop the music lovers from coming out to the event. 

"Well first of all with my Hispanic background I love salsa I love the people here,” says beachgoer Leroy Gonzalez. “And hey listen I'm on vacation and this is a great way to start it right here at the beach.”

Sunday was just the beginning of Salsafest as it will continue throughout the borough with other celebratory events for the rest of the month of August.
