What is your favourite Carnival Soundsystem, area of Carnival or Carnival after party?
Caribana (Toronto, Canada)
Well my favourite Carnival party has got to be the Toronto Caribana parade (that is the showcase of the Festival). The festival has been running for 44 years and is always a great time. After months of preparation, masqueraders, steelpan bands and dj’s on floats with a soundsystem not found inside most nightclubs wind their way along a 3.5 kilometre stretch on Lakeshore Boulevard.
As for the best “club parties” after the parade. The best + most successful Saturday night party takes place at the ATLANTIS PAVILLIONS – ONTARIO PLACE. ATLANTIS is one of Toronto’s most exclusive venues on the Toronto Waterfront. Elevated 70 feet above the water, this unique venue is only used for events of this type TWICE ANNUALLY. It features 4 spectacular ballrooms with floor to ceiling panoramic views of the Toronto skyline and waterfront, 13 world-class DJs & MCs & 3 of the city’s biggest personalities as hosts. This is the longest running upscale event for the mature clientelle.
What is your carnival anthem of all time or this year?
What is the best food stall to eat at?
Anywhere on the parade route…SOOOO MUCH FOOD!!!
