Carnival season in Trinidad is a special time. We may be a little island unknown to most of the world, but we celebrate Carnival on such a grand scale we have dubbed it the “best” in the world. Afterall it is ours! Trinis look forward to Carnival season every year whether they are playing “pretty mas” or not; heck many experience post carnival depression and count down to the following year.
2014 proved that Carnival is getting grander as each year goes by. The creativity, the costumes, the music, the people made it another unforgettable year! It’s one of the many occasions on these tiny isles we are most patriotic and celebrate what makes us One.
Here are a few snaps of the beautiful people that make up this cosmopolitan nation, a range of ages and ethnicities, a range from the different big bands in Port of Spain such as Tribe, Bliss, Legacy, K2K, Harts and Yuma to the little kiddies.
