Introduction

The five day celebration has grown to be one of the largest carnivals in the world, attracting close to 4 million people. The Labor Day celebration has become synonymous with Labor Day in the USA and marketed throughout the world. The entire weekend features various events and parties such as Kiddie Carnival, J’ouvert parade, Steelpan and music trucks. Although this carnival celebration does not feature many competitions some of the most sought after artists in Soca, Calypso, Reggae and other genres can be found in NYC during this period.

Visitors are sure to see a sea of various Caribbean flags during these street parades as many of the islands tend to congregate.
