Saturday, August 15, 2015. New York City – The NYC Caribbean Carnival week 2015, it’s from Thursday, September 3rd to Monday, September 7th in Brooklyn, NYC. This year will be the 48 year that people celebrate the carnival.
For years, I have been covering (from outside of the barricades) the Annual Labor Day Parade. This year, I would love to get a media pass to be able to cover the parade from inside.
If you know, how I can get a media pass to cover the parade, please, let me know.
A press release by Stefan Ringel, Communications Director of the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President, says “Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams joined the West Indian American Carnival Association (WIADCA), along with a colorful array of costumed dancers, to launch New York Caribbean Carnival Week 2015.
Taking place the first week of September, the lineup of festivities that were announced highlights the rich culture and contributions of the borough’s Caribbean community, headlined by the annual Labor Day parade on Eastern Parkway that attracts more spectators than any other event in New York City.
According to data from the 2010 US Census, Caribbean-Americans comprise 16.4 percent of Brooklyn’s population.
Borough President Adams and others celebrate the rich tradition of WIADCA and encourage all New Yorkers to take part in the upcoming celebrations.”
