MONTREAL, June 21, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Carifiesta is back and carnival
fever will once again take over the streets of Montreal on Saturday,
July 9th, 2011.
Carifiesta is Montreal's Caribbean Carnival and the only event of its
kinds in Quebec. Since its creation 36 years ago, Carifiesta has become
the uncontested great carnival of Montreal. This major summer event
annually attracts more than one hundred thousand of visitors each year
which ranks it as the second largest Caribbean carnival in Canada and
one of the most attended carnivals in North America.
The Carifiesta will be taking place this year on Saturday, July 9th, 2011. The festivities kick off at noon and run until 5pm. The parade
starts at the corner of Guy and runs along René-Lévesque Boulevard
until Sanguinet. Lots of beautiful costumes will be on display,
colourful floats playing Soca, Calypso and Reggae music as well as the
sweet sounds of the Steel Pan orchestras. This year, there will also be
a FREE ice cream giveaway for everyone courtesy of the TD Bank.
Sponsorship partners of this year's Carifiesta include: The City of
Montreal, TD Bank, True Juice, CKUT, K103, CJAD, Community Contact, and Caribbean Curry House.
