Trinidad and Tobago - Carnival
The Trinidad and Tobago annual carnival took place this year on the 3rd and 4th of March.
A Colourful Event
Carnival is the most significant event on the islands' cultural and tourism calendar, with numerous cultural events running in the lead up to the street parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday. It is said that if the islanders are not celebrating it, then they are preparing for it, while reminiscing about the past year's festival.
The carnival in Trinidad and Tobago is an explosion of colour, music, revelry, and creativity,
With its massive masquerade bands, spectacular costumes, pulsating music and unparalleled stamina for partying, Trinidad's Carnival is often described as the greatest show on earth. It is a time for release and everyone is invited to join the party.
Mrs Gallivan managed to bring some real carnival costumes in from Trinidad. Some pupils wore the costumes and showed them to the rest of the pupils in the school. Primary 7 pupils did some art work using the wonderfuls costumes.
