FOUR MORE SLEEPS!
That’s right, this weekend Toronto will be celebrating its 50th annual Caribbean carnival. Saturday, August 5th, the road becomes a stage for masqueraders as they chip down Lakeshore and Exhibition grounds.
Things will get started at around 9am but the festivities won’t end until sundown. Expect nothing less than feathers, soca, sunshine, rum and good vibes.
Caribana will be huge this year, trust me you won’t want to miss out. Look for #TeamVibe at the parade! The one and only DJ Smartiez will be reppin’ Fantazia Mas on the truck. DJ Marxman and myself will be liming with Carnival Nationz, I will be playing mas with the section Her Majesty. Don’t be shy to approach any of us; we will be handing out exclusive VIBE swag and weekend giveaways.
Check out the official website for more details about the parade and other Carnival events happening. Who do you think will take band of the year? Drake’s annual OVO festival and Veld Music Festival will be held on the same weekend so keep an eye out for celebrities around the 6ix.
Follow my journey at the parade on social media @Vibe105to or my personal account @harlenejay. You can also find #TeamVibe at Soca or Die Thursday August 3rd at Cabana Pool Bar with Dr. Jay de soca prince (@socaprince).
