Lake Shore Boulevard

Hot Date: The Caribbean Carnival Parade

AUGUST 4  Don your most colourful outfit for the summer’s hottest cultural celebration—the 45th annual Caribbean Carnival parade. Starting at the Exhibition Place grounds and heading west, a 3.5-kilometre stretch of Lake Shore Boulevard erupts with a vibrant procession of elaborate costumes and calypso, steel pan and chutney bands, plus tens of thousands of spectators dancing on the sidelines. The revelry continues on August 5 at Ontario Place, which hosts Beyond de Lime, a noon-to-night party with island-inspired food and concerts. Call 416-391-5608 or navigate here for further details.
