Despite rain and the wind, Montreal was the place to be Saturday as thousands took the streets and party for its 41st edition of the annual Carifiesta parade. People of all ages and from all backgrounds watched on and danced along to the sounds of a dozen Caribbean nations.
“This is our culture, this is us,” said Fabiola Abelard with Ayiti Makaya, the group that organized this year’s Carifiesta. “It’s not always the sad, the bad and the ugly. It is the beautiful colours, it is vibrant, it is all the laughter and the dancing and everything that is lively. This is us.” – source
