If you’ve never experienced Cayman Carnival, then this is the year to be here for it! Starting April 24th, the streets of George Town will be filled with music, costume, dance and excitement! A highlight of the year for visitors and residents alike, Cayman Carnival Batabano is a Caribbean road party to rival all others!
For those who don’t already know, Batabano is a truly unique street parade, filled with music, art, food and fun. Participants have the chance to dress up in stunning carnival regalia as the island comes alive with celebration. I have to say, Cayman’s street parades are something I miss the most when I’m away at university. It’s almost impossible to capture the atmosphere in words- you really have to experience it for yourself!
There is something for everyone. A junior parade starts on April 24th, which is a kid-friendly fete that the whole family can enjoy! Then, if you’re looking for some more grown-up fun, stick around for the main street dance on May 1st. If the costumes alone don’t get you, the rhythm and flavor of the event will! And with every room at theReef being beach-front, you can celebrate in the streets one day and relax by the ocean the next!
Come and “jump” in the streets with locals and people from all over the world- it’s a Caribbean tradition you don’t want to miss!
