Carnaval del Sol - Latin American Week

Family Plaza

Mercedes Benz Van Family Plaza

Carnaval del Sol celebrates family. We believe family life should be grounded and well rounded. History and culture give us roots, while knowledge of health and wellness, financial stability, and environmental awareness will help us build strong futures. Fun and relaxation is just as important too! Our main sponsor Mercedes Benz Van traces their heritage as far back as 1886, and they proudly promote “The Best or Nothing” from their family to our family and friends. Mercedes Benz will have their new Metris van on display and may even let you take it out on a test drive after the show!

Colores del Sol

For the first time ever, Carnaval del Sol 2016 will include an amazing fashion show! We are very excited to be partnering with the VCC Fashion Department and Modelco Management to create a captivating fusion of fashion, dance, and Latin culture. Using the Carnaval colours as inspiration, the fashion show will highlight the colourful collections of VCC Fashion graduates. Summer time looks in yellow, red, blue and green will dance down the runway to the upbeat sounds of samba and salsa.
