West Indian Day Parade goes virtual amid pandemic
Labor Day is a lot quieter this year along Eastern Parkway, as the West Indian Day Parade is being held virtually.
Last year, the holiday drew thousands with instruments, bold colors and a festive spirit.
The West Indian American Day Carnival Association says the parade is being held online due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Vendors returned to the annual parade route despite that the event is virtual.
Wendy Bull, who has attended the parade for the past 10 years, says she can't wait for it to return.
