No Parkway parade for Labor Day
The West Indian American Day Parade has been postponed until September next year due to "uncertainties surrounding COVID-19," organizers say.
“The uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 this past year have led us to postpone our annual historical Labor Day Parade,” WIADCA said in a press release.
“We plan on hosting the parade in person in September 2022 and we encourage you all to continue to practice social distancing and stay safe.”
For Carnival 2021, WIADCA is partnering with the Brooklyn Museum for a number of events happening across several days, including live music, a virtual Youth Fest promoting arts and culture, and a steel pan jamboree on the lawn of the museum.
