Popular Toronto DJ and radio personality, Fresh Cut De Mayor does it again with the final edition of Soca Reggaelution for 2014. The ‘Endless Summer’ theme rang true as feters, limers, drinkers and winers heat up the party enough to make old man winter nervous. The audience packed into the view as Outcast Sound ft. Fresh Cut and a ridiculous line-up of DJs tore the place down; indoor and outdoor! It was a night of the hottest Soca, Reggae, and T.N.A. (Total Non-stop Action) at Toronto’s largest Caribbean extravaganza. Fresh Cut promises more of what the people want at the next Soca Reggaelution, Family Day long weekend 2015.

Scotiabank Extends its Title Sponsorship of Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival for three years

July 4, 2013  (Toronto) The Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival kicked off today with music and dancing at the Ontario Science Centre.  MPP Laura Albanese, (York South-Weston) Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport helped unveil the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival 2013 campaign this morning.

The Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival will run from July 9, 2013 to August 4, 2013, and once again bring the culture of the Caribbean to over a million spectators in downtown Toronto. The public launch will take place onJuly 9, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. at Toronto’s Nathan Phillip’s Squarewhere dancers, musicians, and calypso singers will get the city into the Carnival spirit.

“The funding from our sponsors means that the Festival can continue to deliver new and exciting events again this year,” said Scotiabank TorontoCaribbean Carnival CEO Denise Herrera-Jackson.  “We are changing how the big parade will be run due to the construction on the CNE grounds which will give more opportunities for spectators inside the park grounds to see our colourful parade.  Once again, funds raised at our events will be donated to four community charities – The Children’s Breakfast Club, The Caribbean Children’s Foundation, Prostate Cancer Canada and Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario.”

“In 2008, we became title sponsor of the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival — the largest North American Caribbean festival of its kind.  I’m proud to say that once again, Scotiabank has extended our partnership for another three years,” said Christine Williams, Scotiabank Vice President, Toronto East District. “This partnership started an exciting new chapter for Scotiabank because the Caribbean is where the Bank’s international story began.”

“For the fourth year, we are happy to sponsor the Ontario Science Centre Innovative Costume Award which recognizes innovation in costume design,” said Lesley Lewis, CEO of the Ontario Science Centre. “There’s a foundation of science behind the beauty and creativity of each and every costume. From the mathematics involved in the design, the physics involved in how the costumes move to the mechanics and engineering involved in the structural integrity for the larger, more elaborate pieces.”

The Toronto waterfront Carnival parade, taking place on August 3rdis expected to draw over a million people down to Toronto’s CNE grounds. This year the staging area for the 16,000 costumed masqueraders and floats is being moved to the north-end of the CNE property.  The parade will travel the width of the CNE grounds before entering Lakeshore Blvd, giving the festival more space to accommodate spectators.
