Family Fun Day at Tracey Towers

Family Fun Day at Tracey Towers

By Robert Press

It was a bright Saturday afternoon at the Tracey Towers complex where it was Family Fun Day. Dozens of children and their parents gathered in the Community space outside for the planned Family Fun Day. Mayor Eric Adams was scheduled to stop in so there were many Bronx elected officials on hand including Bronx Borough President Vanesa Gibson. City Council members Eric Dinowitz and Oswald Feliz, Assembly members Yudelka Tapia and Nathalia Fernandez, State Senator Gustavo Rivera, and a couple of candidates running for office.

Mayor Adams cancelled and went to another stop nearby, to which almost all of the elected officials went. There were backpacks filled with school supplies, plenty of food to eat, music, and special treats for the children at the event. There was even a Book Bus where children went into the bus to pick out a book to keep. A good time was had by all. 



The book bus was loaded with books for the children to take one for themselves. Judge candidate Yadhira Gonzalez-Taylor is next to the bus giving instructions to the children and parents.
