T-Dot

T.O. is short for Toronto, Ontario. But over time, hip-hop heads added their own style, and instead of just saying "T.O.," they'd say "T dot O dot." Then it just became T-Dot and it stuck!

Caribana

Every summer, Toronto blazes with the excitement of calypso, steel pan and elaborate masquerade costumes during the annual Caribana Festival.

Caribana, celebrating its 38th anniversary in 2005, is the largest Caribbean festival in North America. Presented by the Caribbean Cultural Committee, the two-week Festival attracts over a million participants annually, including hundreds of thousands of American tourists (NBA star Shaq comes every year).

Among the highlights is the Caribana Parade, one of the largest in North America. Thousands of brilliantly costumed masqueraders and dozens of trucks carrying live soca, calypso, steel pan, reggae and salsa artists jam the 1.5 km parade route all day, to the delight of hundreds of thousands of onlookers.

Other keynote events include the King and Queen of the Bands Competition and the two-day Olympic Island Caribbean Arts Festival. Outdoor concerts of Caribbean music, calypso harbour cruise parties and glamourous dances round out the entertainment roster.

Caribana was created in 1967 as a community heritage project for Canada's Centennial year. Based on Trinidad Carnival, the Festival now also includes the music, dance, food and costumes of Jamaica, Guyana, the Bahamas, Brazil and other cultures represented in Toronto - the world's most culturally diverse city.
