CARNIVALLLL

I'm not sure if you guys know but in Toronto there's a lil (big) thing that goes on in Aug. called Caribana. I remember when i just moved here and it was around Caribana, a real nice host took me out and told me to be prepared for the craziness, not knowing what to expect i was ready for whatever. When we hit downtown area it was MADNESS! thousands of people were outside and i heard "NEB!!" so i turn around and it's my boy from boston!! he thought i was there for Caribana but i told him i actually just moved to Toronto :) The rest was history. "Caribana is a festival of Caribbean culture and traditions held each summer in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Annually Caribana draws hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the globe to Toronto's lakeshore. Caribana is a Caribbean Carnival event, that has been billed as North America's largest street festival, frequented by over 1.3 million visitors each year for the festival's final parade." So this year i'm getting together with some sexy ladies and were playing Mas! Were having a meeting at my place on Tuesday to pick a costume. Here are some of my faves, which do you like better??

sorry but i'm not a fan of people just being into my culture for the drinking/liming/partying aspect. people from jamaica, trinidad, guyana - all of the West Indies have A LOT more to us than just Caribana.

I absolutely agree with the person that wrote about people jumping on the caribbena culture and thinking Caribana is it. It's veryyy frustrationg to say the least. Honestly, Caribana is farrrr from being like carnival, very far...i save my money for Trinidad carnival every year and it is the sweetest thing in the world. Caribana is like being half naked in a street full of gawking unappreciative people.

Carnival is part of our culture, our history our blood. I almost despise caribana now, so whatever make the best of it i guess. Don't ask me what hip hop at the docks has to do with caribana and caribbean culture..i have no idea. and yea Gillian looks good as does my girl Trishhhh above her. big up Trini massive <3
