Yesterday, 43rd Annual West Indian American Carnival brought out millions (over two million, according to MyFoxNY) to celebrate Caribbean culture in Brooklyn. Performers showed off colorful costumes and got people dancing with music. One performer explained to NY1, "Just having one peace and one heart. It’s just uniting as one. That's what it is."
A Jamaican attendee said, "The people treat you very nice when you go. There’s a whole lot of entertainment and you just feel like a queen when you go there," while a Virgin Islands native told the Daily News, "I've been coming for years and I love to get a taste of my ancestry and have some fun before the cold weather sets in." There was also food from the region—and even some "Jewmaican" kosher jerk chicken.
