BROOKLYN — After three years, the West Indian American Day Carnival returned to Eastern Parkway, drawing thousands upon thousands of Haitians and lovers of Haiti among its revelers to celebrate Caribbean culture. People waving Haiti’s bicolore came from near and far. On foot and on floats, they mingled along the parade route with New York leaders, including Haitian American elected officials, cultural influencers, musicians and friends. 

Here are some images from the day.
