Get on, get on, get on!!!


Today was a l l about the kids for the Caribana Junior Carnival. Sixteen mas bands started at Shoreham Drive and ended up at Yorkgate Mall.
I started attending Kiddies when it was on Eglinton West. That parade had a different feel, more of a junior version of Caribana. Since it's moved to our n'hood in North York, I think it's a stronger, more kid friendly event.

We volunteered this year to become more involved in Caribana. We're quite pleased with the experience and will definitely continue to help out.


Jesse Matthews performed a fantastic choreographed number in front of the judges that wowed the audience. If there isn't a prize for best section, there should be!





There were just so many amazing Queens & Kings, Individuals, and costumes (that can't really be called regular) that represented the bands theme extremely well.














This Jr. winer boy stole the show!
Big up Bootsman, Carl, & reader Michelle who recognized Trini-in-Toronto & I and said she'll come out of the shadows & post.

Very nice Karabana. The vibes seem quite evident in your pictures. Another generation for making the love grow positively.

Kudos to you and Trini-in-Toronto, for volunteering. It's only neglect that makes the spirit drain out to irrelevance. So keep on keeping on. One love!

Aye Dougla,

Good to hear from you. It was a really nice time. We always enjoy ourselves at this event and we live close by, so it wasn't a problem to come early and lend a hand.
