Adults' Parade

MONDAY 27TH AUGUST 2018
ALL DAY · PARADE ROUTE

This is the carnival climax. It’s the last lap for another year and you can really feel the intensity of the party vibes. It’s what the mas bands have been preparing for all year: it’s showtime! Time to free up and just revel in the joy that is carnival!

If you haven’t bought a band costume feel free to wear your own (you won’t be alone), grab a whistle or a horn find a good position on the parade route (we recommend you arrive early) and jump up and dance as the floats pass you by.

MONDAY 27TH AUGUST 2018
