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 takes place in Carriacou. The festival encompasses wonderfully expressive street dances, island music, the Jab Jab and even the authentic Shakespeare Mas. This masquerade 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. A host of activities lead up to the culmination on March 4-5.
