West Indian-American Day Carnival 2013

One of NYC's most enduring—and vibrant—Labor Day activities is the West Indian–American Day Carnival, which travels along Eastern Parkway from Crown Heights to Grand Army Plaza. This year's iteration was no exception: Costumed revelers danced through the streets, while vendors served traditional Caribbean dishes. (This being an election year, there were also some politicos in attendance, of course.) Click through the slide show above to check out more photos from the event.
