Ready for a taste of the Caribbean on Vancouver’s North Shore?
The Caribbean Days Festival returns to the city for a full weekend of sun, music and food straight from the islands, July 26-July 27. More than 30,000 people converge on North Vancouver’s Waterfront Park – just next to the Lonsdale Quay – for the largest event of its kind in the province.
The free festival, running from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, highlights the best of tropical rhythms, cuisine and culture. It kicks off with a Carnival-style parade on Saturday, July 26 (starting at approximately 10 a.m.). Costumed performers – many in feathers and skimpy, sequined outfits – strut their stuff down Lonsdale Avenue, grooving to Caribbean beats before turning onto Esplanade and making their way to Waterfront Park.
Action inside the park centres around a free outdoor music festival, backdropped by the Burrard Inlet and gorgeous views of the downtown Vancouver skyline. Continue reading:
