Friday is the first day of the Puerto Rican Festival in Rochester.

There will be live performances all weekend with food and cultural events. The festival is held at Frontier Field.

In recent years, the festival has been overshadowed by unrelated violence and arrests. The festival president is appealing to people not connected to the festival, who may be thinking of causing a disturbance, to be respectful.
