THE BRONX - Bronx Week will kick off its 45th celebration on May 5 through May 15, and is jam packed with food, tours, guest performances and the Bronx Ball, according to organizers.

At the ball, the four 2016 Bronx Walk of Fame inductees will be honored and officially become inducted at the grand finale on May 15. Vincent Pastore and Eduardo Vilaro are two of this year’s honorees.
