The 51st Peek’s Toronto Caribbean Carnival officially launched at Nathan Phillip’s Square Tuesday morning.
It was a long day of vibrant colours, music and celebrities.
“The world is going to hear how proud we are in Toronto,” said Patricia Jaggernauth, the master of ceremony at the launch.
Being one of the largest cultural events in Canada, the four-week long festival goes until Aug. 12 to celebrate Canada’s freedom and diversity.
If the past is an indication, at least a million people are expected to flock to Toronto to attend the festival.
The Grand Parade, the biggest highlight of the carnival, will take place on Aug. 4 at Exhibition Place.
