A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of enjoying the opening parade for Cariwest, Edmonton's Caribbean Arts festival, as well as the City Market downtown farmers market.
We hadn't expected to catch the parade, our minds being focused on the farmers market and the treats that awaited us there, but we came across it quite by accident and made our way all the way to the front. It was a fun surprise.
Don't ask me about the bag pipers. Haha, I have no explanation.
After the parade we found the City market, which had been slightly displaced by the festival, and took in the vendors and food trucks. My favorite part was all the people taking pictures of this English Mastiff dog who was about the size of a small pony.
