They say Caribana, the annual Caribbean carnival in Toronto, is North America’s biggest street festival. More than a million visitors are said to converge on the city for the celebration of Caribbean entertainment arts that culminates on the first weekend of August/last weekend of July – depending on how the August Monday holiday falls.

This is Abeng News’ take on some of the party animals in all shapes and sizes.
