The Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival, is a festival that provides an experience showcasing a collage of culture from throughout the Caribbean. Additionally, it is a celebration where Bahamians and guests from around the world will be immersed in all things Bahamian. Since the inception of Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival in 2015, more and more Bahamians are catching the fever. “Road Fever” the signature street party of Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival were thousands of costumed revelers flood the streets in the most amazing body costumed to jump and wine and party through the streets. It is open to any and every one willing to purchase a costume and jump in da line with a carnival company, however it is best suited for those who have the stamina, rhythm, confidence, positive vibes and a free spirit. The criterion for participation has nothing to do with age, wealth, nationality, or religion. It has everything to do with a true revelers spirit.
Totally unplanned I decided to go to The Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival today. I have always herd about “Carnival” but Ive never had a real interest since I’m not a huge fan of Soca music. I must say that I don’t regret going. The whole vibe was pretty cool I must admit. I mean I must of had a little fun walking over 7 miles without realizing. I thought I would document a few my adventure for those who didn’t have the privilege of making it out. Enjoy!
