Toronto Caribbean Carnival, continues to shine as the Caribbean festival to be at
with the major event being the King & Queen Competition at Lamport Stadium July 28 and the Grand Carnival Parade
July 30 at CNE grounds and down Lakeshore Blvd. This year saw 12 Mas Bands participating
and all levels of costume design for the the big costume leaves one breathless. Many younger generation designers
are coming into age bringing a new dimension to Mas.
For the smaller Mas Bands, its all about having fun and not about who is Band of the Year keeping their revellers
costume lower price so more can enjoy.
Also over the years see more and more other cultures take part
like Filipino,Chinese and many overseas tourist are coming just to be part of Carnival as well as many
continually from New York,Ohio and other states
