Caribbean Carnival: Toronto’s Junior Carnival Parade moves to Downsview Park – Toronto Star


Toronto Star
More than 2,000 people will be attending the free children’s event known as Junior Carnival Parade on July 21, which has been held the past eight years in the Jane-Finch area. It was so popular that organizers decided to move it to the larger venue.

Charles Roach, who in 1968 helped launch Caribana, the precursor to the carnival, smiled broadly as youngsters got ready AND flamboyantly flailed in bright pinks, oranges and baby blues with drums beating and music blaring.
Downsview Park is a park in the community of Downsview in Toronto, Ontario, Canada that first was home to de Havilland Canada, later also a Canadian Forces Base.
Area: 593 acres (240 ha)
Address: 35 Carl Hall Road, Toronto, Ontario M3K 2N6, Canada
