Scenes From The West Indian Day Parade 2016

photos by Rebecca Smeyne

Brooklyn's West Indian Day Parade, the annual Crown Heights celebration of Caribbean culture that happens every Labor Day weekend, came back in full force this past weekend -- and PAPER sent photographer Rebecca Smeyne to follow the festivities again this year. Beginning with the pre-dawn J'ouvert celebration and followed by an all-day streetside celebration, it was, per usual, a gorgeous, glittery affair packed with plenty of glitz and glam.
