Trinidad Carnival 2015
It’s mid-July so you know what that means; it’s Band Launch time!
For Trinidad Carnival 2015, silly. Everyone knows that!
To fully understand what that means to a Trini and to really get into the Trinidadian psyche during this time, one should understand the festival culture of the island. However, for those not familiar with the Carnival Festival in Trinidad and Tobago, here ya’ go Beginnings of Trinidad Carnival.
So, every year as the summer progresses, we get closer and closer to celebrating Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. For some, it was only yesterday that they were masquerading through the streets of Port-of-Spain. But, it’s July and already the island is preparing to do it all over again. Trinidad Carnival 2015 is here people!
Participating in this once-a-year event is just one of those bucket list items that is a MUST DO in your life! This two-day festival attracts visitors from around the globe from all walks of life. Although Trinidad's Carnival is similar to Brazil's, there is one huge difference; ANYONE can participate in the parade, not just watch as in Brazil.
If you do happen to live in Toronto, New York, Miami or Notting Hill, you may be familiar with a reproduced version of the Carnival festival. However, none has come close to the spectacular show Trinidad hosts. If you are from the Caribbean Islands, you have probably been waiting for this all year since last lap.
Plan Early Preparation requires months of saving and planning to fully enjoy what is called The Greatest Show on Earth. With the colorful costumes that fill the streets, non-stop all-inclusive parties that begin at least two months before the actual event and the air of excitement that hits you the moment you land on the island, Trini Carnival is an event in a class all by itself.
For accommodation, check out this ideally located Guest House L'Orchidee Boutique Hotel. The customer service there is impeccable! For more information, call (868)750-6099 or (868)621-0063 and ask for the early bird Carnival 2015 package.
