A Cultural Exposé - Connections 2011 band launch

Next up to launch this afternoon was Connections, joined this year by the Bahamian Junkanoo Legends of Toronto. It was a nice change of pace to attend a launch at a mas camp, it had a back-in-the-day feel, of how bands used to launch.

Some highlights for me were the great colour mix of lavender and pink, the sky high green headpiece and yes, the men's pinstripe hat.

A decent size crowd came out with their kids to this free launch to, aside from see the costumes, hear comedian Jean Paul, buy a drink, eat BBQ and lime with friends.
Great job Mervyn and team, and here's to a successful Caribana, or should I say at this moment, Toronto International Carnival!
