Toronto Community Housing children play Mas at Kiddie�s Carnival!

July 25, 2006

Toronto�s Kiddie�s Carnival took place on a soggy Saturday, July 22, 2006 in the Jane and Finch community.

This year�s parade was made cheerful with Toronto Community Housing�s junior masqueraders on the parade march. The rain couldn�t stop the bacchanal, and approximately 70 children from TCHC communities joined the colourful Mas while singing and dancing to the DJ�s soca selections.

This year�s jump-up party was represented by children and youth from Etobicoke, York, Markham-Eglinton, North York, Downsview and Davenport Midtown. An after-party was held at the Firgrove Youth Centre where the children were treated to music, games, and lunch.

The parade was a chance for the children from many of Toronto Community Housing�s multi-ethnic communities to connect with Caribbean culture through dance, song, and costume. This was the sixth year of the Jane/Finch event; this was the second time that Toronto Community Housing has been involved.
