The carnival double quickly approaches, I hope you have been able to make your arrangements to fly to the island continent of Jamaica to enjoy part two of the carnival double I talk so much about.
Though it’s not very big or intricate our take on carnival is centered on fun and comfort. So there will be no baking in the sun without drinks…there will be water carried out to masqueraders so you don’t have to crowd the bar and in some sections waiters will carry finger foods to you as well:)
But before we get to the road we have our fetes.
While ours are relatively tiny compared to Trini fetes at carnival time we have some that carry lots of vibes and I think that you get a lot more value for money here in good ole JA.
Let’s start by giving you a link to a comprehensive list of ALL the soca parties happening this year.
Lehwego recommended fetes are those that I have personally attended, that have vibes and reasonable comfort levels (drinks, crowd, venue etc)
This post will develop as time goes on with more flyers and details to come soon. Make sure to bookmark this page and check back often.
