i have a friend telling me i need to go to this next yr!man it have too many yes... that insomnia 2003 was mad.... but i remember the days of Boys scouts.. that fete used to be sweeeeeeet.. more recently the fete i had a blast at .. was La Barge for carnival... complete with memory loss, the need to get a new phone.. it was just off the chain.. is a wonder nobody fall into the water and drown.. a miracle i say
I don't think they can every pull that off again...at least anytime soon with live bands jumping as one...that my friend was Miami Carnival....Period.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.Best carnival was with Poison in 2005 -Cherchez la Femme, section Kwan Yin.
Best Fete...hmmmm, plenty stand out -AC 2005 & 2006, Salybia 2006, Insomnia just about every year until I got tired and stopped going in 2010, Sunnyside this year, Machel Monday this year.....
