Carifiesta Montreal 2011 Parade
The Carifiesta Montreal is a 3 day celebration filled with Caribbean events & festivities. Last Saturday, for its 36th edition, the Carifiesta parade took over the streets of downtown Montreal. There was a procession of 9 floats decorated with the colors of the countries being represented. In addition, there was traditional dance, live bands that played West-Indian and Afro-Caribbean music and flamboyant costumes worn by the Carifiesta masqueraders. These enthusiastic dancers were coming back from their warm-up and were just about to join the parade and enjoy their moment in the sun.
