Soca superstar Machel Montano, direct from Trinidad, will electrify the crowds Friday as part of PANAMANIA, presented by CIBC, along with Dwayne D’ Bandit Pitt and Dr. Jay de Socaprince. The next day, Venezuelan-born Toronto Raptors star Greivis Vasquez will be on hand ready to give coaching tips on the three-point shot.
