Throughout many countries in the Caribbean it’s Carnaval or Carnival season. Carnival, a festive procession that includes music, dancing, celebration and traditional costumes takes place before the Christian holiday of Lent.
In recent years the event has become trendy thanks to social media showcasing the celebration and festive costumes.
Celebrities like Rihanna from the island of Barbados has also contributed to its popularity with stunning costumes that top the former each year.
The Coalition wants you to put on your green and yellow, try a caipirinha, and get a taste of Carnaval through dancing, live music, authentic food, drinks and a bustling marketplace.
