Shuttle service will be provided. The Fordham Road Renaissance Festival will also be held Sunday. The area will be closed between Kingsbridge Road and Morris Avenue from noon until 6 p.m. The final event is the Central American Parade, which will head down Southern Boulevard from East Tremont Avenue to Boston Road. The procession starts at noon and will last until 2:30 p.m. Anyone trying to get around the borough is urged to use mass transit, although weekend track work will also be in effect.
