Carnival

Sometimes described as the 'greatest show on earth', Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival is an explosion of colour and music. A five-day event, the celebration culminates each year on the Monday and Tuesday preceding Ash Wednesday for a party like no other. The festival begins at 4am on Monday with revellers dressed as devils in the predawn J'Ouvert party, but it's not long before the sounds of steel pans playing calypso music float through the streets as bands compete for prizes and parades wind around town.
