THE BRONX - Edgewater community celebrated the Labor Day holiday on Saturday.

Every year the community gets together and organizes running races and swimming races for both adults and children.

The Edgewater Athletic Association holds a variety of activities, including a float competition to give kids an opportunity to shine.  

This year was extra special as they celebrated 100 years of the community tradition.  

On Sunday, residents are set to commence the swimming races and coordinators are hoping Hurricane Hermine does not loom over the event.

The Edgewater Park celebration will continue until Monday.
