Are You Ready for Some Flying Fish?

I hope you like jerk chicken, beef stew, oxtail, rice and peas, macaroni pie, fried flying fish, curry goat, callaloo, souse, salt fish, fried bake and coconut bread because the West Indian Carnival Festival & Parade descends on Eastern Parkway this weekend!

New York City’s largest street fair and cultural festival is more than just eating, though. There’s plenty of music, dancing and colorful costume displays for all ages. Check out the
official site for all the details.

If you want to learn more about the history of the festival, visit our
website. Or stop by the Caribbean Literary & Cultural Center (CLCC) at Flatbush Library. For 14 years, we’ve been preserving and presenting the cultures of the peoples of the Caribbean through art exhibitions, film festivals, community planning, immigration assistance and much, much more.

See you at the roti stand!
