West Indian–American Day Carnival
Even in New York, few events overwhelm the senses more than the West Indian–American Day Carnival, which celebrates the roots of NYC's Caribbean residents. Hear the sounds of reggae and calypso music, taste freshly cooked delicacies and see revelers in elaborate, colorful costumes. It's a great chance to experience firsthand the City's trademark diversity—and, of course, to purchase the foods, crafts, books, clothing, art, jewelry and more offered by vendors along the parade route, which runs along Eastern Parkway between Utica and Flatbush Avenues. The parade starts at 11am.
