Join us as we celebrate National Caribbean Heritage Month! We will be meeting to watch the Parade of Carnival Bands, the highlight of this year's “Philly Carnival”, hosted by the International Caribbean Cultural Foundation (ICCF).

The parade and festival showcase Caribbean culture at its finest and serve as an avenue by which Americans and other ethnic groups can learn about Ethnic / Caribbean culture, art forms and expression with costumes, dance and Caribbean music, showcasing Steel Pan.

    Good Members: I want to first apologize for those that couldn't find the location with all of the big trucks and great music I thought it would help :).
    As the Marketing Director of Philly Carnival I was shocked by the great turn out Philly, NY, NJ, MD and surrounding areas provided. I did get a chance to meet some of you and for those that I didn't we will meet soon. Have a great week Raheem

    We are less than one week from Philly Carnival! Bring your family friends even the kids. This is a event with lots of music, flag waving, and dancing. If you don't have a trinidad flag my suggestion run and get one lol or bring any international flag. I know in trinidad we throw powder in the air to fog up de place so don't be surprised. I'll post my number closer to the date. This is only the beginning of Carnival in the city of Brotherly Love

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
