Scotiabank Toronto Caribana Lime and Grace 2010 -

Ok, so, I am awake and have survived another Caribana parade. My feet hurt, my back is a little tight, and I'm feeling hungry, but I'm not making any breakfast....any idea why? Because we are heading down to the Caribana lime at Ontario Place where we plan to eat until we can't eat any more at the Grace Tropical rhythms Caribbean food festival. Did I mention that food is FREE with admission to the lime?

It costs $19.10 for adults and $12.64 for seniors. Plus, there will be music and entertainment and a good family vibe. And its a beautiful day to come chill by the lake. Did I mention free food?
Here are all the details

This August 1st and 2nd, Ontario Place will be hosting De Scotiabank Caribana Lime presented by OLG. It is two days of music, dance, culture and food including a Sunday Grace Kennedy food festival and performances by Trinidad’s Silver Stars, the world’s best steel drum orchestra.
