Find out what's happening in Brooklyn this Labor Day 2013 weekend!
Don't miss this major New York City parade! Preceeded by days of pre-events, including a viewing of the steel drums held at the Brooklyn Museum, the actual parade itself is held on Labor Day Monday. It takes place on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn.
You won't soon forget the costumes and marchers wearing extravagant feathered head dresses, floats, marching bands, steel band music, vendors selling roti and other local street food, live performers up and down Eastern Parkway. It's drawn up to two million visitors.
This annual Labor Day Music event has something for everyone. Called the Here and Now Labor Day Festival, it's an inventive musical collage. It lasts 4 days, but get your tix in advance. Memorable. See the program here. Get Tickets are $35 and under..
