BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport families flocked to the Bridgeport Community Festival today at the corner of Main and State streets to enjoy a day of live music, art and magic.

The festival featured musical genres such as jazz, reggae, gospel, rap and Latin. There is also interpretive sign language, Latin dancing, a magic show for kids and, of course, plenty of food.

The organizer of the event says the festival was created to unite the community and celebrate the area's diversity and local arts culture.

This is the second year the free event was held.
