Marching bands, floats, and banner groups flocked to the streets to hail Brooklyn−Queens Day with a parade presented by the Brooklyn Sunday School Union (BSSU).
Led by the Coney Island, Marlborough and Bensonhurst divisions, the annual jaunt marked the 180th anniversary of BSSU, and the 24th anniversary of the Coney Island division.
The march began at Stillwell and Mermaid avenues and proceeded to Sea Gate, traveling along Neptune Avenue and onto West 25th, before returning to United Community Baptist Church, 2701 Mermaid Avenue, for culminating ceremonies.
The Reverend Larnie Mobley led the procession.
