Port-of-SpainTrinidadToday, the two unique islands of Trinidad and Tobago will erupt into a parade of merriment as thousands of people from around the world are expected to participate in the biggest street party on Earth- the Trinidad Carnival. Officially celebrated on February 8 and 9, the Carnival festivities started just after Christmas and will continue until Ash Wednesday, February 10 -loaded with dozens of high energy parties and premier cultural competitions. 

Opening with J’Ouvert at 4am on Carnival Monday, revellers parade through the streets immersed in paint, grease and mud until sunrise. Later in the day on Monday and all day on Tuesday, thousands of masqueraders flood the streets throughout the islands in bold, colourful costumes, dancing through the parade routes to the exhilarating sound of soca, steelpan and calypso music. From its diverse people and culture to its amazing biodiversity, Trinidad and Tobago breaks the mould of the typical Caribbean destination. These islands boast a year-long calendar of cultural events and festivals on both islands, friendly, multi-ethnic people and amazing opportunities for eco-adventure: everything from birding to biking to hiking to diving and cave exploring. An eruption of colour, music, revelry, and ingenuity, Trinidad's Carnival is a time for happiness and unabated fun. If you will be missing the celebrations this year, be sure to join the party on February 27 and 28, 2017!
