West Indian–American Day Parade 2013 (slide show)

Parades do not get any more colorful than the annual, Caribbean culture–celebrating West Indian–American Day Parade. Check out our pics of the festivities.

While Labor Day means barbecues and weekend getaways for many, it means just one thing to many others: a chance to see and be seen at the annual West Indian–American Day Parade on Brooklyn's Eastern Parkway. The parade, the culmination of five days of festivities honoring the city's Caribbean cultures, drew spectators from far and wide to watch nimble dancers and lavish costumes, sure, but also to enjoy the company of neighbors, great food and joyful music. Click through our slide show, below, to check out the colorful procession and its enthusiastic fans.
