If you are talking about the Junkanoo parade at Atlantis, anywhere in the Marina Village closer to the end by the Coral Tower lobby is best. They begin and end there.

On the other hand, if you mean the Boxing Day or New Year Junkanoo on Bay St, the best seats are in Rawson Square. This is where the judging is done and the rush out groups most energised. Barring that, any seating along Bay Street is good -- Shirley Street less so.

Generally, the lower to the ground in the beachers the better, as people tend to stand up in them so if you are higher up, you won't see much unless you stand up too! The prices will dictate how good/fair the seats are, so that is the best guide.

More than likely the OP was asking about Boxing Day or N.Y. Junkanoo considering the comment about bleachers. That clue went right by me as I never saw the event downtown.

Another great place is on the upstairs deck at the Athena Café - a few years ago this was $200pp, don't know what it is now. Have Fun Rushing - or watching the rushing…!!!

Rushing is what you are doing when you are a part of it/take part in Junkanoo…!!!)

I like the idea of a place like Athena Cafe. Anyone know if there are other places that offer anything like this. Also, is there a big difference between Junkanoo on Boxing Day or New Years. I would like to catch one of them.

Iguana Café might sell seats on their balcony as well.

The competitors and teams are pretty much the same on Boxing Day & New Year's, but the costumes and theming are all new - so in a way it's two different parades.

Trying to order tickets at junkanootix.com. Put in my password and click on green seats and nothing happens. Any ideas?

Wwbev-

Please give this a break. Most of the advice given by SE is very helpful and detailed. This constant digs and negativity is not what the forums are about.
