Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL
Attend an all-inclusive fete. You pay one price and all the food, liquor (top shelf stuff) and live entertainment is yours to enjoy ALL night. But do pace yourself, it’s easy to go crazy with the unlimited drinks.
Attend a cooler fete. This is a rather cheap way to fete (be in a LARGE party) without having to break the bank. You’re allowed to fill a cooler with drinks of your choice and bring it into the party. For those of you with no cooler, there will be a paid bar. I would recommend getting a cooler with wheels!
Secure tickets for some of the more traditional stuff. like Pan finals, a stick fight, a calypso tent, King and Queen of Carnival (Dimanche Gras) etc.
Try to visit a Pan Yard (home base of a pan band) and Mas Camp (studio where mas costumes are made).
Besides playing mas, you MUST be part of J’ouvert. For maximum fun, security and no-worries, I’d suggest registering in an all-inclusive band. Another time when your costume, security on the road, booze, food and music will be all covered with one price. Be prepared for mud, paint and pure craziness!
Sunscreen, drink lots of water, wear comfortable shoes, leave all valuables at home, be prepared for LOUD music, don’t drink and drive, reserve a day for the beach and as mentioned from the start.. leave ALL inhibitions at HOME!
