THE BRONX - Roaring engines and candy-colored automobiles took center stage on Sunday afternoon at Little Italy's first-ever car show.

The event was held on Arthur Avenue from East 187th Street to Crescent Avenue between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

"You know we always had Saint Anthony's Feast, we have the Ferragosto, why not a car show?" said one organizer.

The show is one of four events the Business Improvement District is hosting to help small businesses in the community.
