Mighty Sparrow (pictured at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in May) will host the annual Caribbean Extravaganza, featuring winners of the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2002, on Aug. 19 at 7:30 pm, at the 20th annual Martin Luther King Jr. concert series at Wingate Field (Winthrop Street at Kingston Avenue, opposite Kings County Hospital in East Flatbush).

Sparrow, aka Slinger Francisco, is a lyricist, composer, singer and comedian who has been performing Trinidadian calypso for 40 years. He’s won the Calypso Monarch title 11 times, and on Aug. 19, Brooklyn will have the opportunity to experience the consummate showman first-hand.

The free concert series is presented by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. Bring your own chairs. Rain date is Tuesday, Aug. 20. For updates, call the hotline at (718) 469-1912 or (718) 802-3700.
