The tri island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique is blessed with two Carnival celebrations, each having its own charm and traditions. The first Carnival festival of the year takes place in Carriacou. It encompasses wonderfully expressive street dances, island music, the Jab Jab and even the Shakespeare Mas. This masquerade which is authentic to Carriacou involves men dressed in bright coloured costumes engaging in the recitation of Shakespeare verses hoping not to fumble on their lines otherwise surrendering to the playful tap of their opponent’s stick.
Venue: Carriacou, Grenada
