It’s been more than eight months since we moved into a condominium (apartment/flat) in the heart of Toronto. Some say its money down the drain for a mere “box-in-the-sky” – we will have paid more than $21,000 in rent for one year! For Bhakti and I, it was a fulfillment of a dream.

After several failed attempts to actually buy a condo a few years ago – thanks to our reluctance to participate in the “irrational exuberance” seen in Toronto’s red-hot real estate market and no thanks to all the non-resident Chinese investors snapping up properties with cold hard cash and driving up the prices, we decided to simply rent a place in the prime-est of locations and live the dream!

The Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival commonly referred to as Caribana is an annual festival celebrating the Caribbean culture. The Carnival is the largest street festival in North America and brings in over a million visitors to the City of Toronto.

The highlight of the festival is the Mas (Masquerade) parade where Mas Bands, in which thousands of participants wear colourful costumes, compete for the Band of the Year award. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen in Toronto. The parade is indeed a treat for the eyes – and ears where Soca and Calypso music complement the Band’s energy. The atmosphere is truly electrifying!

Enjoy some of the moments from the parade we’ve captured below…

“The nearer the better!”

“Friends in need are the friends indeed”

“Love triangle”

“Three Stooges”

For me, all these phrases define Ontarian’s all-time-and-all-seasons favorite trio destinations which I call “M-O-Q“, i.e. Modish Montreal, Orderly Ottawa and Queenly Quebec!
