West Indian Carnival Is Coming

Eastern Parkway Flags

The special GL correspondent who sent us this photo she took on Eastern Parkway yesterday said it put her in the carnival spirit. We agree, and it compelled us to note that the 40th Anniversary edition of the parade is happening on Monday, Sept. 3. There will, of course, be events all weekend long. If you want to learn more about the Carnival’s history, the Brooklyn Public Library has a nice page about it. Of course, you should also check out the West Indian American Day Carnival Association website, which has all the carnival info you could possibly want. The parade will run down Eastern Parkway on Monday. It is the first one without parade founder Carlos Lezama.
