As every years, thousands of revelers in shimmering color costumes will parade to the sounds of hot Caribbean rhythms such as soca, calypso, reggae, dancehall, zouk and more. Flags from all the Caribbean islands will be floating in the parade, but also on the sidewalks and squares to identify the different communities. Traditional Caribbean dishes and drinks will be tasted throughout the event.
