Caribana Parade This Past Saturday in Toronto, Canada

Jump up and stand back.
That was the plan.
It worked, too, until about 3 p.m., when the gyrating masses at the 42nd Caribana parade decided they'd had enough. It was time to celebrate in true Caribana style. Up the street, thousands of plumed masqueraders danced with heroic stamina, while bass-heavy soca music rattled the peripheral vision of anyone who got close enough to one of 37 bands. Organizers estimated more than a million revellers attended the parade along the 3 mile route. The annual festival ended on Sunday.


  1. You know white Toronto hates these festivals. They cause to much trouble and attract to many people.

  2. this look like it was fun

  3. I lived in Toronto, it is the most popular event of the summer...WHO do you think allows the parade to happen in the first place...(I'll play the jeopardy theme while I wait for an answer)
