NEW YORK - More than three million New Yorkers witnessed the festive and colorful annual West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn yesterday. 

Parade participants seem to outdo themselves year after year with more innovative customs.  If anything, this year's event heavily featured brightly colored feathers adorning various parts of the body. 

Although the day started with some rain, the eager spectators got into the spirit of things by clapping, dancing and singing along with the marchers. 

               One disturbing aspect of recent West Indian Day parades has been the appearance of violence and a heavy New York Police Department presence.  This year's parade was no different.  Early reports indicate one person was stabbed to death and two others shot near the parade route.  The shooting victims were expected to survive.
