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!
