I had a reasonably good weekend which included heading out to the Caribana parade on Saturday afternoon. I never thought it possible, but there was just too much booty. Everyone was dolled up and looking for some action, much like this article describes.
I find it a little interesting how Caribana, a yearly occurrence, attracts roughly as many people to this city as the Pope’s visit during World Youth Day, a twice-in-a-lifetime event. Estimates for the Pope’s WYD mass were around 800,000 while the Globe & Mail article suggests that “nearly a million” visitors came to Toronto for Caribana. Meanwhile, we’re bending over backwards for the WYD visitors but Caribana seems always in danger of folding.
