Description

Boston's Trinidadian-style carnival has been celebrating Caribbean culture in Massachusetts since 1973. The festivities kick off on Sunday with the Kiddie's Carnival, specially organized for children with fun and games to occupy all the family, including face-painting and dance lessons. Celebrations continue with the King and Queen Show, in which each steel-band presents their Kings and Queens, elaborately dressed in colorful carnival costumes, before culminating in the big parade on Saturday. Colorful floats and parade bands are joined by hundreds of masqueraders in Trinidadian carnival bands, dancing away to traditional Soca music.
