Carnival means weeks of events that bring you colorfully decorated floats, contagiously throbbing music, luxuriously designed costumed groups of celebrants of all ages, King & Queen elections, electrifying Jump Ups, Torch Light Parades that wind their way through the streets at night, the Jouvert Morning Pajama Parade, the Children's Parades and finally the Grand Parade!
Officially starting in November, the majority of events, celebrations and parades are held in January and February until the Burning of King Momo, marking the end of Carnival Season.
After the Burning of King Momo the entire island goes on hiatus, known as Carnival Monday (official day of rest).
