PORT CHESTER - There was quite a party in Port Chester this weekend

Families all across Westchester turned out yesterday to celebrate the 4th Annual Bolivian Festival. The festival featured a parade, as well as music, dancing and a whole lot of pride.

People from other cultures also joined in on the fun. "It's not just Bolivian people. It's all Latino-Americans in Port Chester. We come together, we're one family, we're not separate. We may be separate in our cultures but we all join together on days like this," said Port Chester Mayor Neil Pagano.

The parade went down Westchester Avenue and ended at the Church of Saint Peter's, where the celebrations continued.
