SOUNDVIEW PARK -

SummerStage is New York's largest free outdoor performing arts festival, and it is back in all five boroughs.

It’s most recent was a performance Thursday night at Soundview Park in the Bronx.

You can find this event all summer long across New York City parks with artists performing New York genres from salsa to jazz to hip-hop.

Event organizers say they turn local parks into dynamic and accessible performance spaces.

DJ Grandwizzard Theodore, the father of the scratch, and DJ Perly, the first woman to win the USA DMC DJ champion title, both accompanied by the Boogie Down All-Stars playing live percussion Thursday night.

Those in attendance say it's much needed for the area. 

"It's a good thing because this is what we need to bring the people together and bring everybody outside for the event. It's happening in the Bronx now and that's a good thing,” says concertgoer Bianca Smith.
