Earlier this month, hundreds of Police Athletic League (PAL) children united to celebrate and learn about different world landmarks during PAL’s annual Cultural Day. Brooklyn children in third and fourth grades participated in a colorful parade featuring themed banners and attire, interactive exhibits, a Knowledge Bowl competition and cultural performances.

PAL’s 2015 theme, “World Landmarks,” provided the opportunity for youngsters from 19 PAL centers throughout the five boroughs to learn about the most significant structures around the world. All summer long, children explored the geography, food, sports, tourist attractions, holidays, festivals, customs and languages of each country through an interactive learning curriculum.

PAL’s Breukelen Cornerstone Center, Brownsville Beacon Center, IS 218 Beacon Center and Wynn Center in Brooklyn focused on Machu Picchu, the Great Wall of China, the Stonehenge and the Eiffel Tower. The event took place at Rainey Park in the Bronx.
