Junkanoo is a celebration in the Bahamas for New Years (also done on Boxing Day 12/26). It is an exciting celebration that draws the whole island together. Expect a never-ending party. The parade lasts from early afternoon well into the night. The parade is free, but you can purchase tickets to assure seating. It is excellent no matter when you get there.
About 50,000 people attend this event and it was standing room only when we got there. There were people of all ages there. I would not suggest bringing kids that are easily scared. Some of the costumes and floats are noisy and scary looking. It is a safe event that is exciting. Be sure to bring your camera and/or camcorder for vibrant pics. I will be sure to post mine as soon as I can loacate them.
