Batabano Cayman Carnival is the perfect excuse to get out on to the streets and have fun whilst dancing away those calories!
The energy of Cayman Carnival Batabano is electrifying. Districts and corporate groups join together in costume to compete for prizes as the design and choreography become more elaborate each year. It is a time to celebrate local surroundings, to display creativity, to voice social issues and of course, to party and unite. Carnival is a true Caribbean tradition - a cultural kaleidoscope of music, dance and pageantry with roots mirroring the region's diverse history of African and religious influences. The colourful costumes reflect our vibrant landscapes and traditions, and the music is the very rhythm of life in the islands. From Trinidad and Tobago, to Jamaica and the Virgin Islands, carnival is the Caribbean's cultural expression of the arts.
For 2014, the Adults Street Parade is on Saturday May 3rd and the Junior Street Parade follows on Saturday May 10th. Find out more at the official Cayman Carnival site:
