Sonia Manzano -- better known as "Maria from Sesame Street" -- will be on hand tomorrow (Saturday) at the Bronx River Festival tomorrow from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. at River Park at 180th Street and Boston Road. The Festival, organized by the Bronx River Alliance, will also feature Salongo, a 7-piece Afro-Cuban/Brazilian Group sponsored by the Bronx River Art Center.
River Park has a view of an awesome waterfall and there will be food and kayak and canoe rides. For more information visit www.bronxriver.org.
(I've been meaning to get Sonia Manzano to sign my daughter's copy of "No Dogs Allowed," a beatiful kids book that stresses her Bronx roots. So, we'll be there. Hope to see some of you.)
