So the madness of Caribana, and the “cool down” in Hamilton have come and gone, meaning the next major carnival to look forward to, especially for all the Carnival Nationz (CNz) peeps and them, is Miami Carnival come Canada Thanksgiving long weekend (SUNDAY Oct 10th).

For the second year running CNz will be bringing out a mas band affiliate in Miami, CNzMiami but this time we adding some twists and surprises for all would-be masqueraders. CNzMiami will have brand new costumes – we mean new designs for sale – based off the same theme that the parent band CNz played for Caribana… “A Tribute to SPARROW”. So if you could not make Caribana for some strange reason, or your costume mash-up (for a few good reasons), or you just want to play in a new costume, then CNzMiami has everything on offer.
