Festival season continues in Edmonton and this weekend Sir Winston Churchill Square welcomes CariWest.
Beer Gardens manager Erick Rosende explains that this long standing festival is a celebration of Caribbean culture.
“This is the 33rd year that CariWest has been active in the city of Edmonton. It’s all the Caribbean communities gathered together to celebrate their music, their culture, their dance and the colours of their ethnicity.”
One of the big draws, Rosende says, is the Great Parade downtown.
“Every year we have a parade with a different type of floats. So every country is represented by a different float. It starts at the Legislature building works all the way around to 108th street to 102nd ave.”
It goes at 10:30 Saturday morning and ends at Churchill Square.
Rosende says another highlight is The Queen of Bacchanal, Destra Garcia who takes the stage Saturday night.
