Trinidad and Tobago Carnival

On the 4th and 5th of March, Trinidad and Tobago host a colourful Carnival celebrating their culture and culture of their ancestors. The colourful event started during the days of slavery when slaves were not allowed to take part in any kind of ceremony that their masters celebrated. Scheduled until 2026, this year’s carnival celebrations fall in March. It is a time to make merry and have fun worrying less about one’s immediate problems. During the carnival, there is a storytelling session that reminds people of their past. The festival features a very elaborate costume parade that is the highlight of the two-day event.
