Hannah Korbee writes that Montreal’s annual Caribbean Festival—Carifiesta—is set to take over Saint Catherine’s Street in Montreal this summer on July 4, 2015. This is the 40th edition of the festival and the city expects 250,000 people to attend this Canadian city’s Caribbean carnival.
For an event that has stood the test of time for 40 years, you have to assume there is something great about it. People don’t return for the sub-par, that’s for sure. We want culture and excitement, that’s what Montreal is all about. Well, this July 4th, you better hold on to your hats, because Carifiesta is back in town.
A true-blue celebration of heritage, Carifiesta highlights music, dance, and dress in its traditional Caribbean form. Prepare for feathers, bedazzlement and a good time. And of course we can’t forget the parade. Saint Catherine’s Street is set to be packed and colourful with Caribbean performers, lighting up the city with every step.
