CROTONA PARK -

The first Praise in the Park event was held Sunday at Crotona Park.

The event is an interfaith celebration with choirs from various churches and parishes in the borough.

The event was organized by Assembly member Michael Blake. Community advocates like Letitia James and Sen. Luis Sepulveda attended the festivities.

Members of the public were also invited with a goal of bringing people together through music.

Organizers say they hope to continue the event next year.
