Senator Serrano attended the 4th Annual Fall for Arts Festival, a free outdoor event presented by the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation. The Serrano sponsored event was a one of a kind outdoor gallery with a highly acclaimed mix of visual, performing, culinary, and interactive arts commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month.

The festival offered activities for children and adults of all ages, and featured Latin music and dance performances.
"As an avid advocate for the arts, it is thrilling to see families from all over the city, and people of all walks of life, come together in celebration of Latin culture and of art in all disciplines," said Senator Serrano, who serves as Chair of the Senate Committee on Cultural Affairs, Tourism, Parks and Recreation.
"The Fall for Arts Festival is a fantastic event that exposes our youth and the community at large to all of the talent and culture that is at their fingertips as residents of the greatest city in the world."
