Bahamas Carnival – A Photo Diary
Where? The Junkanoo Carnival, Bahamas
When? May 2015
Why? I spent a few days dancing with the dance troops at the Junkanoo Carnival in Nassau, in The Bahamas. Here is my colourful, photo diary of the main days from the vibrant street processions.
The day before the festivities, I visited the Carnival Village Project in Nassau, to hear tales and the history of carnival. We learnt how to make the costumes and got to try on a few too. (dream!) To find out how to join a carnival troop for the road fever procession click here.

And as night falls we all make our way to the main arena, where dancing and festivities continue into the early hours. Make sure you have the stamina, we were out till 5am!
