A Jolly Junkanoo Season

December 04, 2017

It is time to get your groove on and celebrate the comings of December. Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years are all right around the corner, and you know what that means... it's Junkanoo jam out time! This annual tradition dates way back to the 1700’s and there is no sign of stopping anytime soon. The brightly lit Junkanoo band can be seen and heard from blocks away — always playing through the night, eagerly anticipating a new day and reason to celebrate, especially around the holidays.

Equipped with trumpets, drums, and loud costumes, the Junkanoo band will bang their way through the streets at the peak hours of the morning to alert everyone of the coming holidays. See if you can follow along with the perfectly choreographed performers and stroll along side of this legendary band — bring in the holiday season in style!

Thank You
