wo pretty ladies representing the islands!

Although the forecast predicted rain, the streets of downtown Miami were dry and HOT! Once again I had a great time hanging with my West Indian peoples. Which country repp’ed the hardest? This year it was Trinidad. Guyana & Barbados had a nice turnouts too… very nice girls. There wasnt as much food for sale because the police told merchants they could not sell without a permit (not even water).

Anyways, the parade was supposed to start at 9am, but it didnt begin until 2pm.  I took SOME pics but as you all know Im more of a video type of person…

Miami Carnival has been an Annual Event since 1984. Within two years of its inception, it had grown from a small neighborhood festival to an international event bringing live bands and calypsonians from the islands. Inquiries came from New York and other major cities. The present Carnival, the Caribbean Mardi Gras, has become the foremost revenue-producing festival for South Florida and is the most popular Carnival in North America.

Toronto Caribana (City Carnival) – August 4 – 7, 2007

Toronto Caribana

The two-week festival—the largest Caribbean bash in North America —culminates in four massive events, at various venues, running from Thursday to the holiday Monday.

King & Queen Extravaganza

Contestants from the festival’s 16 mas bands don gigantic costumes—often measuring 20 feet in all directions—and dance for the chance to be named the festival’s official monarchy. Expect some mean boogeying—last year, a would-be king induced audience squeals by shaking his gold-painted bum. Steel drums accompanied by soca and calypso singers provide the melodies.

When: Aug. 3.
Where: Lamport Stadium, 1155 King St. W.
How much: $26–$31.

Pan Alive

Steel orchestras from the Ontario Steelpan Association compete before a panel of judges. Players showcase their knack for the steel pan, while hammering out everything from calypso to crowd-pleasing jazz and pop songs.
When: Aug. 4.
Where: Lamport Stadium, 1155 King St. W.
How much: $20.


The parade’s 39th incarnation, packed with floats, bands, surreal costumes and thousands of dancing revellers, shimmies down Lake Shore from Exhibition Place to Parkside Drive.

When: Aug. 5.
Where: Lake Shore Blvd. W., between Exhibition Place and Parkside Dr.
How much: CNE grandstands $21; free along Lake Shore Blvd.

Arts & Cultural Festival

Olympic Island is ripe with family-friendly activities for the lazy post-parade day. A marketplace features Caribbean crafts, visual arts and cuisine; tots can make their own masquerade wear in the Children’s Village. Partied-out festival-goers can cap off the weekend by lounging in the sun against a musical backdrop: local and international artists play island sounds from reggae to creole to chutney.

When: Aug. 6 and 7.
Where: Olympic Island.
How much: $19.

Soul Beach Paradise Party 2007 - St. Martin (St. Marteen)

During the day, parties will be held on St. Martin’s breathtaking beaches. At night groove to the sounds of celebrity DJ’s at Soul Beach’s red hot nightclub parties.

Part French, part Dutch, the exotic island offers a myraid of restaurants, superb shopping and an array of adventures.
