West Indian-American Day Carnival Association (WIADCA) officially launches Brooklyn Carnival 2013

Scores of personalities assembled at Brooklyn’s Borough President Gallery to participate in the launch of New York’s Caribbean Carnival 2013. The annual carnival originated in Harlem in the 1930’s by mainly Trinidadian immigrants. The 2013 festival climaxes on Labor Day, Sep. 2, when 1.5 million revelers are anticipated in the carnival-parade on Eastern Parkway.

West Indian-American Day Carnival Association (WIADCA) is the organizer of Brooklyn’s Carnival.

The official shows including Children’s Carnival, Panorama, and Dimanche Gras are held at the Brooklyn Museum grounds and the actual carnival on Eastern Parkway from Aug. 29-Sep. 2. The traditional Calypso “Tent” is at Tropical Paradise Ballroom, Aug. 27-Aug. 31.

Calypso "Tents" or mini-concerts pave the way for carnival. The official New York or Brooklyn's Calypso "Tent" is presented by EVERYBODY'S Magazine. The venue is the air-conditioned Tropical Paradise Ballroom, 1367 Utica Ave. where New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly last week attended a dinner in honor of a top police brass.
