Caribbean Carnival Grand Parade

#Toronto will burst with colour and sun kissed flesh during the @TO_Carnival 2012 Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Grand Parade on Saturday August 4. The parade starts at 10am in Exhibition Place and heads out onto Lakeshore Boulevard, ending at 6pm. You can watch the parade for free along portions of Lakeshore, but otherwise you have to pay to sit in bleachers. Here are some more photos of Carnival costumes from the launch party.
"After months of preparation, masqueraders in colourful and striking costumes and steel pan bands whine their way from Exhibition Place along a 3.5 kilometre stretch on Lakeshore Boulevard. This performance of bejewelled masqueraders continues to draw millions from all over the world to see the live performing street art year after year. With opportunities for VIP seating in designated, controlled areas, which will include upgraded seating, tents, marketplace, and the Carnival village."

See more photos after the jump.
