The Caribana Arts Group (CAG) is planning to kick start the 2019 Carnival season in Toronto with Caribana On Ice, a free outdoor show designed to compliment Black History Month celebrations.
Caribana On Ice will be held at Mel Lastman Square (5100 Yonge Street) on March 2 , starting at 1 p.m.
Organizers say the show will be “a splash of culture, colour, mini CaribanaTM costumes, sweet sounds and lots of energy.”
“In the past, the CAG has held other Caribana On Ice events, albeit with a more informal approach,” event programmer Amah Harris told the Caribbean Camera. “This year we have designed what one could described as a ‘mini’ Caribana on the ice presentation.”
The show features Dance Caribe and the Drumming Ensemble.
Also on the showbill is veteran pannist/calypsonian Panman Pat with his “Pan-Around-De-Neck” presentation.
The ringmaster of the 90-minute show will be calypsonian King Cosmos (Henry Gomez) who promises “to get the audience clapping, dancing and singing along.”
