Party in The Bahamas!

Party people hit the streets in Nassau to celebrate the very first Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival.  Thousands turned out to celebrate art, music, dance and Junkanoo. It’s one of the few post Lenten carnivals representing the spirit of “jubilation” after fasting anywhere in the world.



The three-day festival of cultural expression showcased a number of musical artists, including Soca artists Bunji Garland and Soca Band Visage. Carnival-goers also enjoyed the Cultural Village and many “Jumped Da Line” during “Road Fever,” a vibrant street parade of people dancing in colorful costumes… highlighting just why “It’s Better in the Bahamas!”









Plans are already underway for the next Junkanoo Carnival in 2016.

  2. My twin sis and I celebrated our 40th birthday in the Bahamas via a Carnival Cruise. We missed a lot of the festivities bc of the short time at the port, but were able to hang out at Junkanoo Beach for some time.

  3. Looks like a good time. I saw the billboards around Atlanta promoting this. I would love to make it next year.
