life: WEST INDIAN DAY PARADE 09 + BIRTHDAY BARBECUE

on route to a birthday barbecue, we all managed to stop at the LABOR DAY PARADE. for people who may not know, it’s an annual event that occurs in BROOKLYN and celebrates all WEST INDIAN countries with loud music, great food and non-stop dancing. it’s something that needs to be experienced, at least once in life.

*we jumped the fence and made our way on the parkway. we couldn’t decide what truck to follow. one TRINIDAD truck was playing SOCA and right behind it was a JAMAICA truck playing REGGAE. SCOTT advised us to follow TRINIDAD and that JAMAICA would be too crazy. we decided to ignore his warnings and follow JAMAICA…needless to say, it was insane and while we were in the crowd someone tattooed my back with a BOB MARLEY portrait.
