The Carnival is 2 days. However, there were a variety of competitions leading up to the two days of parades. Competitions for the best in Soca, Steel Band music (Pan) and Calypso were held Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. The Pan competition was incredible. Carnival then comprised three parades First Jouvert (started before dawn on Monday) then Monday Night Mas and finally the main parade on Tuesday. We have divided the photos for the Monday afternoon and Tuesday afternoon parades into kids and adults. This was a real participation event for the entire population of the island. Thanks Grenada.
The Pan Competition
Jouvert - Jab Jab
Monday night Mas
There were 8 Steel Bands competing for the title and prize money. The Bands ranged in size from 32 members to more than 80 members on stage at once. So, you can imagine the depth of the sound when the large bands performed and all participants were enthusiastic.
