Insomnia 2010, standing next to the water trucks, getting soaked. Can't remember the year think about 2006 a thanksgiving Square One with Baron concert. Nice mix of old with the new.

Wow…way too many, but we were just talking about this the other day, one of the best fetes I ever attended was Miami Convention Center… this event was Miami Carnival! The first time I stepped in there….man I was so happy to see, no kidding, minimum 10k-15k west Indians jumping up as one in unity !


These were real Big time promoters, they booked the best of the best from each island….paid them and the show, the crowd was excellent…….i remember Machel and Xtatik….i think 2002, in their circus outfits…wicked performance…..also, remember , I think 2003…Burning Flames coming on like 6 am and leveling that place……..


I can’t see how this could be duplicated anytime soon…smh, just don’t see it, I am talking about the Big Bands, the Unity, the love……fans actually getting their money’s worth !

Best Carnival Experience thus far: Trinidad 2009

Best Carnival Fetes <too much to mention> but what stands out are:
Girl Power 2005
Salybia All Inclusive 2006
LIME 2011 and 2012
Machel Monday 2012

Totally agree with Socapineman Coconut Grove Convention Center on Carnival Saturday is/was the best ... 12 hours of live band music can't be beat! Real vibes, real people!!!!

* edit: just remembered 2005 was a standout too cause I did something different and let my sis talk me into playing in Macfarlane with her on Monday. Different vibe but it was fun.
