Do you recall the article in the Community Contact a couple issues ago stating that there will be no “Trini Day” in the park this year?
Did you hear about the unfortunate death of Devon Matthews, who placed third in this year’s International Soca Monarch with his hit song “D’ Journey (Make It). Well it’s never too late to start over, never too late to pay respects to someone’s contribution to our culture. Montreal Trini Day is a display of Trinidad’s culture through music, singing and dancing and considered one of the biggest outdoor Caribbean events in our city.
Organized by (FOTTQ) Federation of Organizations of Trinidad and Tobago for decades, the annual Trini Day in the Park is something thousand of Soca lovers has been anticipating and waiting for.
Due to work being carried out at the venue on Parc Jean Drapeau the (FOTTQ) has decided to withdrawn from doing it this year but the news of no Trini Day did not settle with many and went viral on social media leaving a lot of Soca lovers in disbelief.
This announcement is the reason why a small group of people came together and decided to pick up the torch and make Trini Day happen. Trini Day Family Fun and Food Festival will be held on Saturday August 12, at the Soccerplex parking lot in Lachine by a new organization.
Come out in your numbers and support the thing as there will be lots of food and entertainment.
