Dancing in the Streets at Pre-Dawn Party J'ouvert

Kicking off at 2am this morning, J'ouvert, a pre-dawn party that precedes the West Indian Day parade, took over Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. Participants followed steel pan bands from Flatbush Avenue to Linden Boulevard tossing paint, sparkles and clouds of baby powder in the air while dancing in celebration until 6am. Our photographer Rebecca Smyene was there to snap all the fun.
