[west indian day parade]

Topic: Around Town
Yesterday I went to the West Indian Day Carnival and Parade on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. I saw much booty and ate jerk chicken and generally had a fabulous time at this giant but surprisingly mellow event, wandering through the crowds from Grand Army Plaza all the way to Kingston Avenue, then back again on side streets to which I will have to return for some serious Carribean eats.

Check out pictures of the day’s festivities. [via Gothamist]
