It is Carnival time people!!!!! I am so wishing I was going to Trinidad this year for Carnival 2011, it has been many, many years since I was in Trinidad for Carnival… I wanted to be there NOW, especially after my amazing trip back to my home-land last summer. Next year for sure. In the meanwhile here is glimpse of all the bacchanalia, revelry, and insane fun that goes on over the two days of carnival in Trinidad. I will just have to resign myself to live vicariously through my family and friends photographs and videos on Face-book ahhhh
An explosion of colour, music, revelry, and creativity, Trinidad’s Carnival has spawned similar celebrations around the world; but nothing on earth can rival the abandon, euphoria and stunning spectacle of our festival. In 2011, the annual Carnival season climaxes on Monday, March 7 and Tuesday, March 8.
With its massive masquerade bands, spectacular costumes, pulsating music and unparalleled stamina for partying, Trinidad’s Carnival is often described as the greatest show on earth. It is a time for release and everyone is invited to join the party. http://www.gotrinidadandtobago.com/trinidad/carnival/
