It's official, Toronto Carnival Band Launch season is underway!
Durham Mas Band kicked off the season with their 2016 presentation of the theme Festival of Nations.
The launch was held on Saturday April 2 at the Markham Convention Centre. The venue was quite nice and had ample space for the stage and surrounding seating area. The launch was also well attended with many patrons, band leaders, media and festival organizers coming out to show their support.
Durham Mas presented 9 sections, which depicted countries and cultural elements from around the world.
It was also great to note, the costume presentation started prior to midnight, which is a trend I hope continues with the launches still to come.
Subsequent to the stage presentation many models mingled in the crowd, which provided a great opportunity for additional photo ops.
Overall good job Durham Mas Band, and all the best in the 2k16 season.
