The West Indian–American Carnival Parade and pre-parade party J'ouvert are decades-old New York City traditions. They celebrate the best of Caribbean culture and provide ample fun and festivities for the third leg of a long Labor Day weekend. This year was no exception as scores of people filled Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, for the colorful dancers, authentic cultural cuisine and live music. Check out our photos from the festivities to relive the excitement and get inspired to try more of the best free things to do before summer ends on September 23.
