great photos Flar. We seriously need to get your stuff in tourism guides all over the province and NE States. So much more refreshing than the corporate tourism books and all the fake poses.

As a side note, why did both of these events take place on James St??
Main Street looks like a fabulous, pedestrian-oriented street that could host events like this.

Hamilton has a sizable Bahamian population? I knew Bahamians studied in Canada alot, but I thought they were concentrated in Toronto.

Very nice, Flar. Hamilton has a diverse population, huh? I never knew anything about that town until I started looking at your photos. Quite an education. Thanks!

I didn't go in, but it looked like a spa. There were a bunch of people standing around drinking wine during the art crawl. Maybe they had some art inside?

Not sure about Bahamians in particular, but there seems to be a fair sized Caribbean population here, and Hamilton is really close to Toronto. I've seen quite a few Caribbean restaurants and groceries around the city.

Almost a quarter of Greater Hamilton is foreign born, third highest behind Toronto and Vancouver. Most of the foreign born are concentrated in the old city.

Hamilton seems like it's on a different world from nearby Buffalo.

These mimes look so cool...

Interesting pictures. But why is Mardi Gras held in August? That's like having the Thanksgiving parade in June.

I actually was in Hamilton for a very short period of time this past week, and the street life was much greater than I thought it would be.

I'm not sure why they call it Mardi Gras It didn't even take place on mardi let alone Mardi Gras (it was held on vendredi and samedi this past weekend). It really has nothing to do with Mardi Gras, it's a Caribbean festival like Caribana in Toronto.
