Caribana Fetes for the thirty-something Crowd

First and foremost, I have to say that I really love how West Indians can have very good multi-generational parties. You really see the difference when you go into clubs here in North America.

Also I have excluded any strictly DJ fetes because we are really spoiled here in Toronto to have a large crop of talented soca DJs who live here, and we wait with anxious anticipation to see soca superstars perform for Caribana.

For complete fete listing please go to http://www.toronto-lime.com/events_tdot.html
That is where I pulled my info.

I have gone to this fete a few times and always had a good time

Thanks for the comment, I work really hard on my last 3 posts and nobody ent say nuttin:( I know people reading it, because ah seeing the hits on the site going up.

We are really spoiled here in Toronto, it wasn't always so eh, I moved back to Toronto in 1990 and men was suffering to see a good fete (I was 17 and could only go to all ages events)
You really have to big up all the djs, Promoters and band leaders. They have done an amazing job in a short time to make Toronto a more livable city for newcomers.
