Bronx Week Parade 2018

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and his co-host for the Bronx Week Parade Bronxnet television personality Ms. Rhina Valentin arrived before the parade began, so they warmed up the people arriving as to just what they would see. BP Diaz said “You will see Bronx Pride on display by residents of the Bronx.”

The three Bronx Walk of Fame inductees for 2018 were Ms. Tarana Burke the founder of the “Me Too Move moment”, Mr. Richard Martin Lloyd Walters, better known as Bronx Rap artist ‘Slick Rick’, and Ms. Maggie Siff of star ‘Billions’ on Showtime Network. Ms. Siff had to catch a flight and missed the Bronx Week parade across Mosholu Parkway.

The Bronx Week Parade continued for over an hour as schools, community organizations, elected officials, and others marched across the parkway, with some school or community organizations showing off their talents for the Honorees, Borough President, audience, and other watching the parade.
