Caribbean carnival: Take two


My MiL arrived from Germany for a visit last Friday. One of the things we decided to show her was the Caribbean Carnival right here in downtown Toronto. Apparently it's one of the biggest carnivals in North America and the organizers were expecting one million visitors into the city for this year's event. I don't know what the final count was, but it was certainly crowded!

This is a close-up look at one of the many beautiful costumes from the event. It was really impressive with all the dancers and the music. My MiL and I will continue to be tourists this week and see some of the other sights in Toronto. I am looking forward to it!

That's a costume? I thought it was a float. Seriously!

Fun times with MIL. So nice. I'll look forward to more of your pictures.

I had no idea McAlister's was founded in Mississippi! We like the place - usually go there every week or so.

I can't imagine walking in that costume, but I sure like seeing someone else walk dressed in such colors.

She was riding some sort of bicycle, but she was the only one holding it up. It was a peacock design. Really impressive!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
