This Caribbean celebration, known for having lively music and lots of skin, is never short on costumed stilt dancers, floats blaring soca and calypso music, and plenty of flags from countries such as Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago. Look for vendors stationed along Eastern Parkway selling island eats like jerk chicken, curry goat and oxtail, to name a few dishes. The festival goes on for a full week, but the parade will be held on September 4 (more details here). Eastern Pkwy from Schenectady Ave and Flatbush Ave Ext, Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
