Central American Festival: Honduran with a chance of Garifuna

DaveCook | Sep 7, 2012 04:56 PM

The one time I checked out this annual event, in 2009, it had a heavily Honduran flair. Many sky blue and white flags, bandanas, and parasols were in evidence; I sighted the gold, white, and black Garifuna colors, too.

The 2012 festival takes place on Sunday, September 9, from 10:00 a.m., between Claremont Pkwy. and Crotona Ave. in Crotona Park, Bronx. A parade -- I didn't see the 2009 edition, but I don't think it can be very large -- begins at noon and proceeds from East Tremont Ave. at Southern Blvd. to the festival site.
