Look out for these 3 floats

Hot-97-float-Labor-Day

Try to see at least one of the following — if not all three — floats. The first is the VP Records truck, which usually has all of the current dancehall entertainers aboard working the crowd. The second is the Hot 97/Massive B truck (Which may or may not be rolling this year, so stay tuned to Massive B’s Twitter for any updates—Ed.). The third is Wyclef’s Haitian truck which is always exciting and, usually, one of the loudest floats on the parkway.
