Caribana King and Queen show Pictures

I am a little ashamed to say that this is the first time I have attended the Caribana King and Queen show. I limed outside once, but I always thought, "why should I shell out the money to sit in the stands and watch these costumes when as a masquerader, I will have all the time in the world to look and see them on the road".
Truthfully, the only reason we were at the event tonight, was because we decided to volunteer to help out behind the scenes for as many events as they needed help for (except the parade of course).

But let me tell you, I don't care how many costumes you have seen on the road, or how close up you get, until you see these costumes at night, under stadium lights, being danced by these KINGS AND QUEENS, you have not witnessed what these ARTISTS had in mind when they envisioned their creations.
It is Breathtaking...... that is all I could say.

The back line was made for the road, the front line was made for the road, but the Kings and Queens were made to be showcased under bright light on the stage like the royalty they are.

I will not miss this show again.

Please forgive us, we didn't get shots of all the costumes because we were working and
also we had to leave at about 10:30pm since Karabana has to work in the morning. And we feteing tomorrow night and playing mas Saturday. Is red bull for breakfast yes. You all could probably check Toronto-lime for complete picks.

Hope you all enjoy the pics, say something, and tell us what you think.

I was at the King and Queen show this year, it was my first and I must say... it was spectacular!!!

I just love when Caribana Festival comes around each year... This year's Caribana Parade was pretty good except for all the people who broke through the fences and kinda slow the parade to a crawl... But overall it was alot of fun. Check out some of the pictures from this site. http://www.caribanafever.com

BTW, you got some really nice pictures of the Kind and Queen show!!!
