NEW YORK - Hundreds of kids from across the city are celebrating a milestone anniversary with the Police Athletic League. 

The PAL is hosting "Cultural Day" in the Bronx as it marks 100 years of cops providing kids with safe, fun activities. 

The theme for the entire centennial year is "Our PAL Communities," which has youngsters visiting PAL centers outside of their boroughs. The goal is to learn about different neighborhoods and the cultures unique to other communities. 

Cultural Day includes a display of students' artwork representing various PAL neighborhoods, as well as kids taking part in musical performances and dressing up in costumes to represent the diversity of New York.
