    The cultures of the Caribbean have been on full show at the 51st Toronto Caribbean Carnival on Saturday, with greater than one million folks anticipated to have descended on the metropolis by the time the vibrant present is over.

    Since its inception in 1967, the Toronto Caribbean Carnival has grown to be the crown jewel of the metropolis’s summer season festivals — and as is customized, it culminated in the all the time eye-catching Grand Parade.

    The carnival weekend kicked off Thursday and runs via the August lengthy weekend ending on Simcoe Day. The day honours John Graves Simcoe, Higher Canada’s first lieutenant governor and the man who initiated the abolishment of slavery in Canada.
