The kiddies palanced at Junior Carnival



Congrats to Louis Saldenah for their BIG wins today: Band of the Year, Queen, King and Female Individual!!!
So we just got back from the Caribana Junior Parade for 2010.
We had a really nice time. There were 12 bands and we have to give shout outs to both the FMC and the band leaders, because we started exactly on time. Very impressive. The costumes looked really good and there were lots of kids having a great time. These are a few pictures that we took, the kids had a blast, so if you have little ones and they weren't in the parade, you need to sign them up next year. Some bands had costumes for as little as $20.
The parade ended up at Yorkgate mall and there was music and lots of food and entertainment for the kids.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada: Over 1,600 children performing in 13 masquerade (or mas) bands took part in this morning’s Scotiabank Caribana/Yorkgate Mall Junior Carnival Parade. An estimated crowd of 5,000 watched as the children danced their way from the Black Creek Pioneer Village down Jane Street to the Yorkgate Mall at Finch Avenue.
The Parade is designed to give children a taste of what the (adult) Scotiabank Caribana Parade is like on Saturday, July 31st, 2010. As well, it showcases the Jane/Finch neighbourhood in a positive light. Each band in the parade was judged for a number of titles and prizes. What follows are the results of the competition (only the top three are sited below). Competitors have only 48 hours to contest these results. If unchallenged, they become official on Tuesday, July 20th, 2010.

It funny how that How I was @ Revellers' blocko this past Sunday, for their annual Las Lap for Kiddies. When I got there AFTER hearing Nurse Karen(Soca Therapy FLOW9.35)made to know that Louis won 4 out 5 titles. Jamal was telling ppl on the mike that he's won Kiddies' Band of the Year. But nobody corrected him.

So did Louis really win??
To my understanding, They were annocuned the bands that were in order and ppl got confused thinking they were calling the winners inseated.

What we heard was there was a list of the bands in order appearance in the parade and another column which showed their points and who won. The person reading the results made a mistake and read out the bands in order of appearance. Yes, Saldenah did win.
