Next stop, Hamilton and Brampton

This Saturday you have two choices for a carnival parade (we real lucky in the GTA boy). You can either take a trip down to Hamilton, or go up to Brampton. We making the trip to Hamilton, because it real hurt mih heart when it didn't happen last year. What if Mardi Gras never came? Well it actually never came. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out the website and hear the song.
