If you’ve ever wondered where that toe-tapping,
booty-shaking pan music comes from, or went slack-jawed over
the artistry of those towering costumes and floats, the Brooklyn
Center for the Urban Environment is offering a behind-the-scenes-tour
of the making of the West Indian American Day Carnival.
On Saturday, Aug. 27, from 3 pm to 6 pm, guide Horace Morancie will take his tourists to see the preparations for the parade which marches down Eastern Parkway each Labor Day. Visit the costume makers, pan makers and players and sample Caribbean cuisine.
Meet in front of the Tropical Paradise restaurant at Utica Avenue and Avenue D in East Flatbush. The fee is $11 non-members, $9 BCUE members, $8 seniors and students with ID. For more information, call (718) 788-8500 ext. 208 or visit www.bcue.org.
