EAST FLATBUSH - The biggest party of the year in Brooklyn is only two weeks away and vendors are busy making last-minute preparations.

Some of the highlights of this year's West Indian-American Day Carnival includes a caribbean and soul food inspired menu served by Crystal Manor. Patrons will get to enjoy jerk chicken, fish, rice and peas and macaroni pie. The chef from Crystal Manor says a lot of work goes into getting food ready for the carnival. She says meat must be seasoned days in advance and chefs cook for hours the night before.
