I usually go to the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn. They have this parade in Miami and Boston, too, I think.
I watch it from the fire escape of my Aunt's apartment or I join in. But not without friends or my bf to Booty-Guard me. You can't stand still without some drunken guy taking the opportunity to grind on your ass. I felt my first erection at the Carnival years ago. Yeah...
Or I go to a barbecue.
