Caribana Festival, Toronto, Ontario

Toronto , Ontario
view web site ›'s insider take:

The Caribana festival began in 1967 as a gift from the city's Caribbean community to mark Canada's centennial. Now it's Toronto's biggest cultural attraction, bringing in hundreds of thousands of visitors in July and August. The rhythms of calypso pulse throughout humid Toronto, and the parade snakes along Lake Shore Boulevard, with gorgeous floats, toe-tapping music, and brilliant costumes. In Yonge-Dundas Square, you'll find all official festival information, tickets, and souvenirs. The event also takes over Olympic Island, transforming it into a miniature Caribbean, with steel-pan bands, other entertainment, and lots of tasty island food.
