Saturday, May 3rd 2014 was another great day for revelers and masqueraders as they celebrated the 31st annual Cayman Carnival Batabano. Bright colours, beads, feathers, glitter, gems and energy flooded the streets. The scorching 90 degree heat did not deter the soca junkies from jumping, neither did it deter the masses that came out to watch.
Thankfully, my work day creating vibrant, carnival looks wasn't as hectic as it was in 2013, so I had more than enough time to join in on some of the fun.
Every year, this event attracts thousands of visitors from around the world to our tiny piece of paradise in the sun. Even though our carnival is incomparable to those in Trinidad, Jamaica, Brazil and Honduras, our people still know how to take full advantage of the latest soca hits and all the fun involved.
I love all the bright colours that flood the streets during carnival. It brings such a happy vibe.
