The rain didn’t stop thousands from attending “A Great Day In Harlem,” an afternoon of music, food and fun, July 31st, at the U.S. Grant National Memorial Park on Harlem’s far west side. The annual event, which is the first big event of the HARLEM WEEK calendar, brought education and entertainment to the scores of attendees, like Harlem native Sheila Davis, who said the event was a highlight on her calendar. “I’m a Harlemite, and I come every year to celebrate my community,” the social worker said.
