On Saturday, Aug 4th, 1 LOVE T.O. paraded down Lakeshore Blvd as part of this year’s Toronto Caribbean Carnival (also know as Caribana). We started off our day by taking a ‘class photo’, with over 300 people rocking their Roots Canada and 1 LOVE T.O. flag/heart t-shirts standing in front of our float. We looked great and it was only a matter of time before other people started following us on the road. The heat was absolutely draining, but thanks to Nandos chicken and the good people at Red Bull and Appleton’s, we were able to withstand the heat and whine all day.
Mr. International aka Kardinal Offishall made a special guest appearance, jumping on the mic to get the crowd hype!
Toronto Raptors player Amir Johnson joined us as our official US ambassador for 1 LOVE T.O.
We had an incredible first year in the parade, with a diverse band that truly exemplified the meaning of 1 LOVE T.O. Our band members for 2012 represented Canada, Jamaica, Trinidad, Guyana, Grenada, Barbados, St. Kitts, Philippines, and the USA.
We can’t wait until next year… #ShowYourRoots
Big thanks to our partners: Roots Canada, Amir Johnson, Nando’s, Flow935 and Appleton’s.
