The music’s beat at Carnival helps keep the rhythm in the street as dancers jiggle their way to towards the end of a three mile parade route. The float carried the music, food and beverages (beer and cocktail drinks). The dancers glistening faces wore exhausted smiles as they swayed past.
We arrived in Curacao two days prior and almost missed the party. Carnival was in the last few days of a two month celebration of spectacular parades and parties.
Instead of being a spectator, next time I want to join the party on the street and wear one of those colorful costumes. I now have it on my bucket list.
If this is something you would like to try, check out Curacao’s Carnival website for more information on being a participant. http://www.curacaocarnival.info/eng/index.php
