But the best part happened when we decided to get a bite to eat. I shouldn't say "a bite" though, because it was more like a feast once we all shared what we had ordered. The vendors that lined the parkway represented almost every cuisine of the West Indies, and we tried to get a good variety so that we wouldn't miss out on anything. Our favorite dishes included savory goat roti, ackee and saltfish, macaroni pie, bake and shark, calalou, and of course deep fried festivals. The flavors of the food were just as bright and unique as the people in the parade.
