Caribbean Day Parade a Huge Success


Holy awesome. I think this was my favorite Caribbean Day Parade yet. Every year I get down to Georgia and New Hampshire too early. And every year I say I’m not going to come as early next year. But man was it worth the wait. Everyone was in a super good mood. Despite the brutal heat, the atmosphere was absolutely electric. The music? Phenomenal. The dancing? Off the hook, as the kids say. The costumes? Brilliant. But of course words can do this parade no justice. So I’ll post some of my favorite photos after the jump and I’ll continue to post some cool pics throughout the week. So if you took any photos that you are particularly proud of send them to [email protected] and I’ll post throughout the week. Best photo gets a free PoP t-shirt of course. So what was your favorite part of the parade?

MPD was out in full force and some even managed to have some fun.

Dancing on the trucks.

Trinidad represent.

Sweet costumes.

Get your Voodoo on.

What’s a parade without politicians? Mayor Fenty represent.

Council member Bowser represent.

More dancing on trucks.

More costumes.

The construction workers may have had the best view.

Riding in style.

Snakes were a plenty.

In case MPD needed some back up the Guardian Angels were in full effect.

Lots of folks on stilts.

I was attacked by the mud people. And damn did I get sunburned…
