Stalls serving fried chicken and fish, accompanied by a few makeshift grills for kebabs, ribs, dogs, and burgers, are scattered along both sides of the 30-block parade route. Here and there you may also see a few banners more familiar from the West Indian Day Parade; one year the boldly colored flag of St. Kitts and Nevis guided me toward curry goat (small portion; $7) and the cornmeal-based flatbreads called johnnycakes. Jamaican stalls are not uncommon, but at the most recent parade I was more intrigued to see a vendor from Belize. His coconut tart ($1) was less sweet than the typical macaroon; that's a good thing, given its size.
