After a 2-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Caribbean Island of Trinidad finally returned to its shining glory and splendor with the culmination of its annual Carnival celebrations. Widely known as “The Greatest Show On Earth’” Carnival has its traditions rooted in the Afro-Caribbean history and resistance of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, dating back to the 1700s when African slaves decided to have their own parallel pre-Lenten celebrations to their French colonial masters.

With Soca music celebrating 50 years of cultural existence in the twin-island Republic and an action-packed schedule of party after party for visitors and residents alike, hundreds of thousands of masqueraders flock to the streets of Trinidad and Tobago’s capital city, Port of Spain, for a two-day parade of unbridled revelry, euphoria and ‘Hart Fete’ on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.

This year, the ladies definitely did not disappoint for The Great Parade in their costumes. Dressed in a stunning array of colors, these breathtaking designs are the result of months of planning and production by various troupes, also known as “mas bands.”
