Caribana 2008 fever was in the air and this rounds it was time for the kids to have their fun. Taking place every year with a kick off down Jane Street, passing several judging points to end at Yorkgate mall, getting there is easy, it was parking that was going to be comess! With the event scheduled to begin at 12noon, TJJ was on the move like Mario Andretti on the highway cause it was already 11:45am ... and did we mention the parking scenes ... right-o! With luck on our side, it turned out that the parade started a little later than expected and we were right on time.

With over 13 bands and over 1,500 kids participating, the streets were filled with young masqueraders, some as young as 2 years old happily jumping up and chippin' down de road to the latest and greatest soca chunes. A colorful display of beads and feathers were on parade in the streets and it was exciting to see that Carnival will always be around because we all know that once you get the opportunity to experience the thrill and joy of being a masquerader there is nooooo turning back. Like the song says, "Soca in meh vain, soca in meh blood!"

Overall, a good time was had by all, especially with the blazin' sun that was beating down upon us. Congratulations to all the mas camps that presented on the road, a job well done. We look forward to next year.
