Description

Junkanoo - the best named festival in the world - is something definitely worth getting out of bed for. This national festival is an explosion of cowbells, goat skin drums and whistles and a heady mix of feathers, costumes and skirts. Taking place every Boxing Day and New Year's Day from 1:00a.m. - 9:00a.m. the event is a parade like no other: there's no boring A-B march along a pre-planned route but rather hundreds of different crews charging around the city streets all crossing paths with one another desperate to outdo their rival crews. Each crew competes to blast out the loudest tunes, to have the most impressive go-go girls, to have to most energetic drummers and to create the biggest assault on the senses possible.
