BROOKLYN - It was a Labor Day full of food, music and fun as Brooklyn celebrated one of its most anticipated events of the year, the West Indian Day Parade.

The parade, now in its 46th year, has become a tradition of Caribbean food, costumes with plenty of sights and sound from the islands.

Along with the thousands of parade-goers came a lot of trash. Sanitation workers started the cleanup just as the parade ended to ensure Eastern Parkway shows no signs of festivities.
