Bronx hosts first annual African American Caribbean Heritage Parade
The sounds of steel drums and calypso beats rang out along the Grand Concourse Sunday as brightly colored floats celebrated the first annual African American Caribbean Heritage Parade.
Parade organizers say the Bronx celebrates its boroughs diversity with parades and felt the time was right to start a new tradition. However, there were few attendees.
Organizers blame the small turn-out on lack of publicity and vow to do better next year. Local Bronx politicians and the boroughs historian Lloyd Ultan were in attendance.
