BROOKLYN - Volunteers are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the colorful costumes and head dresses that make up the West Indian Day Parade.

Band Camp Ramajay Mas has been making traditional costumes to compete in the annual event since 2009, and have won two years in a row.

Members began cutting, sewing and gluing materials since June to create the elaborate outfits that represent mas, or masquerade, characters from Trinidad and Tobago.

The competition features more than 500 masqueraders dancing their way down Eastern Parkway where they will be judged at the end for a trophy and money prize.
