Summer Carnival Season Returns to the Caribbean After 2-year Pandemic Pause

With COVID-19 restrictions largely lifted across the Caribbean, the summer Carnival season has returned. Among those hosting carnival festivities are Jamaica, Grenada, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Barbados, reports the CBC.

Due to the pandemic, most destinations have pushed their festivities later than usual, with events running from JUN through AUG this year. Festival-goers can expect large street parades and parties with music, colourful costumes and dancing, and events centred around local food and drink. However, Lynda Williams, president of the Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners, says caution must be taken with mass partying due to the new variants of COVID-19.
