Under the motto, “One Caribbean, One People, One Voice,” the carnival will be held from Sept. 1 to 5 in Brooklyn, ending with the costume- and music-filled New York Caribbean Carnival Parade along historic, tree-lined Eastern Parkway, Jared McCalister reports for The Daily News.
Caribbean cuisine, arts and crafts, island drinks clothing and fashion accessories are among the many items touted by vendors along the parade route.
