Carnival Throwback: Colorful Costumes of the Last Decade

Carnival is here – Aruba’s biggest and most colorful party of the year! The One Happy Island celebrates their 66th carnival celebration in 2020, and as per usual, the Aruban community is happily enjoying every moment leading up to the grand parades.

In honor of Aruba’s Carnival Season, I thought it would be fun for us to take a look back at some colorful carnival costumes from the last decade.

Hope you enjoy this feathery and colorfully decorated blast from the past. Keep scrolling to check out some snapshots of happy Aruba carnival lovers from year 2010 up to 2019!
