Following the late afternoon ending of the Emancipation Day happening along Bloor Street, many of the participants piled into cars and made their way to the Scarborough Town Centre for the windup of the last Toronto Caribbean Carnival event scheduled for 2022.

 

Called Carnival Flavoursthe three-day fete was held outdoors at the Scarborough Town Centre.  Pan. Calypso. Dance. Food.  Costumes. Every form of Carnival Arts was on stage performing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings on the mall’s huge parking lot. Carib Beer, one of the Carnival Flavours had a large beer tent on site.

 

“We had an incredible turn-out, and for the most part the weather held up,” said Carnival COO Chris Alexander. “Because of Covid restrictions we were limited to how many people could come in.  Basically we were sold out from our Friday opening to the end of the Sunday evening performance.”

Carnival Flavours teamed up with the very successful Food Truck festival – Street Eats – that was taking place adjacent to the Carnival.  After watching the pan players and seeing the costume displays people were allowed to visit Street Eats to sample the Food Truck specials. Apparently Jerk Chicken Poutine was a popular item!
