Amazing pics!! Job well done! I will move this to Urban Showcase for self taken photos, as Cityscapes is for pics from the net.

The Islands were jam packed this weekend. Hanlan's Point was a hoot as always. Took a dip with some friends and some beer then back to the city. Did anyone make it over there this weekend?

Caribana is the largest Caribbean festival outside of the Caribbean and attracts over 1 million people. It has run annually since 1967.

Salsa on St.Clair is the largest Latin festival in Toronto. It attracts over 250,000 people. I have no idea how many years it has been running.

The MMVA's or MuchMusic Video Awards is the music video award show for Toronto based MuchMusic, a music based television network with affiliates in the Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Czech Republic, Mexico, and throughout most of South America. MuchMusic USA, MuchMusic Finland, and MuchMusic Brazil were recently sold or disbanded.

The awards ceremony is not held in a conventional theatre, but instead as a large street party incorporating the MuchMusic World Headquarters, its parking lot, and parts of Queen Street West in downtown Toronto. The MMVA's are hugely popular and receive high tv ratings due to its informal format. They have been awarded annually since 1990.

Interesting pictures. I don't think that I've ever seen Whites and Asians dressed up for a Caribbean festival.

Thanks for the pictures, Jaye101. I especially loved the MMVA pictures!

Could Rihanna (sp?) be more fierce?

Yeah, it was pretty cool. It's nice to see how in Toronto, people of different cultures participate in cultural events other than their own.

I can't help it, everyone keeps using 'fierce' in conversation...it's rubbed off on me! Anyway, that's hot...
