Five well known Bronx personalities will be honored on Mosholu Parkway at 12 noon, one of whom will be Bobby.
Everyone is invited. Bobby's street sign will be unveiled which is part of the Bronx Walk of Fame and he will join his place with other famous Bronxites, (i.e. Red Buttons, Garry Marshall, Regis Philbin, Rita Moreno, Diahann Carroll, Hal Linden and many others.)
The festivities start Friday night at 6:30 PM.
