EAST FLATBUSH -

The Guyanese community came together to celebrate their independence in East Flatbush Sunday.

The West Indian festivities kicked off on Church and Brooklyn Avenue.

Organizers of the event say the event showcases unity among the Guyanese community as they celebrate 52 years of independence.

They also say that this event is the second largest West Indian celebration in the city after the Labor Day parade.

Both organizers and participants say the goal of the event is to pass down their Guyanese culture to younger generations.
