I went to Coachella for the first time and as a rookie, wound up discovering many do’s and don’ts. Even though I got lucky enough…
Just what is Caribana? Caribana Festival is the largest celebration of Caribbean culture in North America, held in Canada’s capital city and multiethnic melting pot, Toronto. Similar to annual Carnival commemorations in the Caribbean, Caribana is a month of jam-packed festivities that culminate over one weekend, during which an epic parade, totally open to the public, is held the first Saturday of August. Filled with semi trucks blaring soca and calypso music and thousands of people dressed in traditional masquerade garb, you’ll find yourself moving and grooving to the rhythms as you follow the parade through the streets of this fantastically vibrant city. The parade starts on Saturday morning at 8:30 and goes into the evening till 6 near the Exhibition Place along Lake Shore Boulevard near Downtown Toronto. Full of color, pride and revelry, here is a collection of photos of beautiful people in their terrific costumes at the parade.
