Nurse's Lounge: Caribana 2010 is now officially here!

Bandshell stage at Yonge-Dundas Square

Itks midday in Toronto and a lot of people in the downtown core are taking extended lunch breaks to witness the launch of the 2010 Caribana festivities. It's a medium sized crowd at Toronto's busiest downtown intersection.



I rode here from home on a day where the humidity balloons the temperature to 37 degrees celsius. I was ok until I stopped moving. Actually, if the water fountains had been turned on today, I would have jumped right into the spray.



A host of formalities had to be addressed before the entertainment got going. You know how that goes....sponsors and politicians rightfully showing face to curry favour with the community. I suppose I ought to big up Blackberry for taking part two years in a row. (After all, I posted this with my BB.)



The talk eventually gave way to performance by local act including: Afropan Steel Orchestra, Neu Jenarashun, Red Man ( a Calypsonian) and Nikeisha Toussaint. Sadly, a technical error got in the way of her performance of her new single "Bumper".



That's it for now....I need to find some water!!!



Love and Soca,

Pretty funny how you call out the politicians for what they are doing, just showing up to win over the community. Glad to see that Blackberry is supporting!!!
