Carifiesta Dancers, Montreal

Sorry for the silence – work and a long weekend conspired to divert my attention.  On the plus side, the long weekend was photographically productive (Montreal knows how to cram a visually interesting festival or three into a weekend!), so I have a lot of pictures to share.  This was from Carifiesta, a festival of Caribbean culture culminating in a street parade through the city centre.  I didn’t even know it was on, just happened to wander across the waiting crowds and decided it was worth sticking around to see what happened.  Turned out to be a good decision, the parade was a lot of fun to watch and photograph!
