This year’s parade began on a tragic note, however, after a man opened fire on a crowd before dawn. A man and a woman were struck. The Associated Press reported that the parade “often kicks off under a shadow of violence,” with similar events happening before previous parades.

4. The festival is a celebration of Caribbean culture. The parade includes dancers…
