It’s Carnival Week in New York, and pretty much everyone has already gotten the party started, including BET’s eternal 106 & Park—or, as it was titled today, “106 & Carnival,” complete with slightly uncomfortable-looking hosts in mas band costumes. The episode featured a mix of up-and-coming and veteran dancehall, reggae, and soca artists in front of an audience repping just about every part of the Caribbean.

Everyone’s invited when America gears up for its big Independence Day party. Beyond celebrating the U.S.’ freedom from King George III’s British empire, the 4th of July is a chance for all nationalities to reflect on the truths set in the Declaration of Independence: all men are created equal, with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
