and the Band of the Year is...

I wasn't too sure I'd be able to make it to Kiddies Carnival after getting home at 5:00 a.m. from the Scrunter boat cruise. But we dragged our tired selves up the road at 10:30, and it was worth it. The kids had great weather, & it was a fun colourful afternoon of Caribana cuteness.
Starting the parade on Shoreham Drive then moving down Jane Street and winding up at Yorkgate Mall made for a great parade, but it was too long of a route for the younger kids, as was evident from the wee ones who were asleep & the one tantrum I witnessed (lol!)

In keeping with Trinidad Carnival, every band crossed the stage to Jumbie, a sign of what's sure to come for Caribana, lol!


















































































































































































































































































































Jamaal Maglorie's Toronto Revellers
took Band of the Year over Jessie Matthew's Calabash Company, who came in 2nd. Newbie Tribal Knights won 3rd place. Where Carnival Nationz was the band that brought on the competition, watch out, it's now Toronto Revellers & Tribal Knights!
