RECAP: Wukkout!® in the 2016 New York Caribbean Carnival

As many of you know, Wukkout!® had the pleasure of participating in the 2016 New York Caribbean Carnival in Brooklyn.  I wanted to extend a massive thank you to each and every one of you who jumped up with us that day.  You all truly brought the bacchanal to the Parkway!

I wanted to extend a few special thank yous: to our donors - this wouldn't have been possible without you - your support is truly appreciated.  To DJ G$Money - thank you for holding down the music and keeping us moving all day.  To Candice and your team of Carnival Queen Beauty make-up artists - thank you for making the day so special and beautifying us for the road.  To Filecellia - for everything and all that you do for Wukkout! - not just for the parade but every day.  Finally, to our sponsors - Belle + Bella, the Coney Island YMCA, WTRMLN WTR and Palmer's - I am truly grateful for your support.

Donate to Bring Wukkout!® to the West Indian American Day Parade

After a successful jump up last year, we have been presented once again with the opportunity to “march” in this year’s West Indian American Day Parade, happening in Brooklyn on Labor Day.  Over a million people will be in attendance and what better way to celebrate our hope for continued expansion than by bringing Wukkout!® back to the place of its birth, Carnival! 

Participating in this parade will allow us to share Wukkout! with an audience much larger than normal; it is incredible exposure.  Of course, participating in a parade of this magnitude comes with significant costs.  Donations will assist us in covering the cost of renting sound equipment, building a float and insurance fees for the day among other parade expenses.

Any assistance at all will be incredibly helpful in making this day happen.  No amount is too small.  Click below to donate.

Donate

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and we would love it if you could share and spread the word.

Interested in jumping up with Wukkout!® in the parade?  Click here to register.

As always, I am so very grateful for your continued support of Wukkout!®  From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Recap: Wukkout!® at the 2015 West Indian American Day Parade!

I can't believe Labor Day has already come and gone so quickly; what a day!  For those of you who don't know, Wukkout!® had the pleasure of participating in this year's West Indian American Day Parade in Brooklyn.  A lot of preparation went into this event; I couldn't have done it without each and every one of you who donated to the GoFundMe campaign and who jumped up with me on the parade route.  YOU made this possible.  I'd also like to thank our sponsors, the Coney Island YMCA and VROU, your support is appreciated.  Last but not least, huge shout out to DJ G$Money for providing music for us on the road!  Click through the pictures above to see how the day unfolded and check the video below to see a clip of us on CBS News!

Still have Carnival fever?  I have just the event for you.  Check out Wukkout!® this Friday September 11th at 'Carnival by the Sea' in Coney Island's Luna Park for the 'Last Lap' of this Carnival season!
