Caribana - Joanna's Story
I went to Caribana when I was 16 with a few friends. There weren't any wristbands at the time, everyone just danced and enjoyed themselves. The idea of VIP and non-VIP didn't really exist. It was about everyone there, costume or not, just having a great time. At one point I was dancing in a huge part of the parade and I saw Kardinal Offishal who I loved at the time. He actually picked me up and danced with me for a few minutes which was awesome and not something you can expect to have happen to you anywhere else.
