Caribana, Pink

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Caribana. Every year, at the beginning of August, there is a major Caribbean festival! It lasts about 10 days and culminating in a Parade. The costumes take sometimes few months to construct. As parade photos can be quite uniform, I decided to take all my photos in the parade end zone.

There are around 1 million of people participating with many tourist from the USA. Most of the time, the celebration proceeds peacefully, which is quite a feat, given the masses of people.

Michael, every year begining of August there is a major Caribbean festival! It last about 10 days and culminating in a Parade. The costumes take sometimes few month to construct. I took all my photos as the parade end zone. There is not Loveparade as such, but there may be a lot going on at the parties.
