Over 150 young participants, in vibrant costumes and elaborate head gear marched together as part of the Caribana Flags and Colours Parade and Carnival at Yorkgate Mall July 12. The event, often called Junior Caribana, was fully supported by 31 Division officers, who helped provide resources for the annual youth-based event. Constables, along with Auxiliary officers and YIPI (Youth In Policing Initiative) students came together to ensure the parade and carnival went off smoothly.
