Masquerade bands, dancers, steel pan music and thousands of spectators lined Lakeshore Boulevard this morning, August 2, to take part in the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Grand Parade. The Toronto Police Service float led the way with masquerade bands not far behind as the Grand Parade commenced at Exhibition place heading west on Lakeshore Boulevard. More than 300 officers were sent out by the TPS as community ambassadors.
