This Saturday, August 18th the streets of Orleans, Ontario will come alive once again with the sights and sounds of the moving theater known as Carnival. This year the Social Organization of Caribbean Cultural Activities (Club S.O.C.C.A) has partnered with the Trinidad and Tobago Association of Ottawa (T.T.A.O) to bring you a small sample of what the greatest show on earth looks like in their presentation themed "Trinbagold".
It is a particularly special occasion for both the Trinidadian & Tobagonian and the Jamaican diaspora communities as they are celebrating their 50th Independence Anniversaries. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Independence "Trinbagold" will cover "from slavery to independence" which will feature costumes depicting the rich culture that denotes this twin island republic.
The tranquil Caribbean Seas will be represented by the blue costumes, the South Asian/ East Indian culture will be represented by traditional dress interrupted by its designer, the African influences will be showcased with a traditional black & white zebra print, as homage to 'Ole Mas' The Fancy Sailors will be out in full force and the Bacchanal section will cover various facets of the Mas culture in all its splendor.
If you have always wondered about what it would be like to join in this wonderful Caribbean experience called Carnival this would be an opportune time to join in the excitement. Simply contact Club S.O.C.C.A or the TTAO and express your desire to participate. Preparations are in the final stages to replicate the greatest show on earth right here in our National Capital Region.

This year we have decided to have our Black/African Heritage month event earlier. As a way to break the winter blues and not get lost in the midst of the numerous events happening next month. So we encourage you to come out support the Caribbean movie industry and stay for the after party!
