BROOKLYN - Carnival is less than a week away and Brooklyn residents are getting amped up about the annual Labor Day parade.

Every year millions of people from all over the world make their way to Eastern Parkway for the event.

Brooklyn resident Yvette Beatty says, "The most exciting part was about seeing the costumes, when I was younger, now that I've become older, the most exciting part is the revenue."

The parade features Caribbean culture, cuisine, music and dancing.
