Some Scenes From Today’s Earth Day Celebration

Rain, never heavy, but scattered showers, put something of a damper on today’s Earth Day celebration, sponsored by the Montague Street BID. Who can blame Mother Earth for a little rain? April showers, as they say, bring May flowers. In any event, things got going as scheduled at 10:00 AM, with the Brooklyn United Marching Band marching across Montague to the Promenade, then (photo) going back, playing spirited marching music.
