The 2015 #MiamiCarnival was celebrated with the parade of bands, which was held on Sunday, October 11th at the Miami- Dade Fair Grounds. There s a battle of the bands every year, as they strut their feathered, sequined stuff to capture the coveted crown.

The masquerade bands were judged for their visual impact, creativity, clarity of theme, and presentation. And this year did not disappoint, with the most ambitious performers and richly colorful costumes yet.

This year’s festivities included pageantry from the over 20 masquerade bands and performances by the top artists out of the Caribbean. The masquerade bands competed for  over $40,000 cash prize and bragging rights.
