Well people, today is Caribana in Toronto. For all of you who don't know what Caribana is, then I'll fill you in.
Caribana is the largest Caribbean festival in North America. The actual festivities take place over the course of about 3 weeks or so. But today is the highly awaited parade. It's a celebration of Caribbean culture, where you are immersed with amazing music, costumes, steel bands, food and you can't forget the dancing!
As a Toronto native, I have memories of going to Caribana as a child. I miss it and wish I was there to "whine up and jump up"!
I'm going to make an effort to be in Toronto next July/August.
Here's a recap of Caribana 2009 - Enjoy!
