NEW YORK (PIX11) -- International Day of Friendship is celebrated around the world, and Brooklyn -- with nearly one million foreign-born residents -- is getting in on the action with a celebration Sunday, August 3.

Brooklyn Borough President, Eric L. Adams, recognizes that Brooklyn is a diverse melting pot and tells us about his involvement with the celebration.

The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.

This year will be Brooklyn's first annual international day of friendship. Anyone who is interested in volunteering on August 3 at the event, should click here for more info.
