Fantastic Friday, Trinidad Carnival

Fantastic Friday, Trinidad Carnival

Fantastic Friday. Could there be a more aptly named party in all the world of fetes? The answer, as anyone who’s ever experienced this supremely loud, long, and ridiculously high energy celebration of all things West Indian already knows, is an emphatic “no.” The fun goes down each year on the Friday immediately preceding Ash Wednesday and the height of Trinidad Carnival bacchanal on the streets of Port-of-Spain during Carnival Monday and Tuesday. If you go, expect to sleep very little from this night until the wee hours of Ash Wednesday. There are simply too many sweet wines to tief 24/7 all over town.

Uncommon Caribbean
is Steve and Patrick Bennett, two brothers from St. Croix changing the way people think about travels to the Caribbean by putting authentic aspects of island life and the region's unique cultural heritage in the spotlight ahead of the glitzy, one-size fits all tourist trap image popularized over the years.
