West Indian Day Parade

Sep 2, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

| Free

Catch all the color and excitement as millions of Brooklynites & New Yorkers line up along Eastern Parkway from Utica Avenue to Grand Army Plaza for the Brooklyn Labor Day parade

This year, the West Indian American Day Parade & Carnival celebrates its 45th anniversary as it continues to enjoy the distinction of being New York City’s biggest cultural festivals by far.

As in the past, count on crowds to be waving flags from Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, Grenada, Haiti, and other Caribbean nations in a joyful expression of ethnic heritage and cultural pride.

You don’t have to be from the West Indies

Everyone’s invited to take part in the spectacle of thousands of marchers in colorful costumes ‘jumpin’ down the parade route to the sounds of reggae and calypso.

A special added-attraction : the aromas of native foods like Jamaican jerk chicken, Bajan fried flying fish, and other soul-satisfying treats at the city’s biggest street festival.

And that’s just on Labor Day.

Takin’ the weekend off
