The once in a lifetime yearly event that most Jamaicans waited for, the Miami – Broward Carnival, organized by the Miami Broward Carnival One Carnival Host Committee Inc. was this past weekend. Numerous events were organized over the weekend to include Miami Broward Carnival King/Queen/Individual and Panorama, Miami Broward Carnival Official J’Ouvert; however, Sunday October 11th was the day in which carnival lovers from all over the world aligned themselves with a mass band, adorn themselves in colorful and creative costume and paraded the Miami-Dade Fairgrounds at the Miami Broward Carnival Parade of Bands and Concert event.

There was over 20 costume mas bands crossing the stage and it is safe to say that Jamaicans were in almost every band. One was the magical number – One Caribbean, one carnival and one island as the paraders grace the stage. Carnival parade of the bands and concert event was the Caribbean affair in which every island and every generation was well represented by the visibility of flags on display and Jamaican flags were every where. The event culminated with a concert by artistes from across the Caribbean but the featured performance and the performer that closed the curtain on this year’s successful event was none other than Destra Garcia and the Bakanal band.
