Trinidad Carnival 2011

Carnival.  The one time of year in Trinidad when everyone forgets their differences..takes to the streets..and parties with each other for 2 days straight!  As a Trini, I will say our carnival is only rivaled by Brazil’s Carnival.  And for an island of a little over 1 million people..we put on a pretty good show!

Here are some photos from this year’s carnival which took place last week, March 7th and 8th.  Most of the costumes you see below are handmade.  Preparing for carnival is a year round process for those involved.  But, it’s so worth it!  Just look at the beautiful results!
