BVI Emancipation Parade

One of the things that we wanted to see was the Emancipation Festival Parade or their Carnival. We also wanted the kids to be able to experience it. The interesting thing is that finding out what time it starts is near to impossible. And, we believe it’s for a reason. That way no one can say that it didn’t start on time (because no matter what time it was supposed to start, it got started on island time. 🙂

Here are some of the images from that.


Not sure the significance of this but with the donkey dressed as he is with complete leggings, the hat, wig et al, I’m sure he will be the talk of his drove (apparently that’s a herd of donkeys).


Some of the dancers…


Jumbies or Stilt Dancers
