I've never experienced a Carnival Street Parade in The Bahamas. I have always wondered what Carnival was like in The Bahamas, as compared to other islands in the Caribbean with a much louder Carnival presence.
The Bahamas is not to be outdone!
After the Road Fever Street Party, held on Saturday, May 6th, as a key feature of the 2017 Nassau Junkanoo Carnival, I would definitely recommend the Bahamian experience to any Carnival lover.
The Road Fever Street Party surely lived up to its billing, as being all about the vibes. On the streets of Nassau there was a fusion of colours and jubilation! For miles on end all you could have seen were thousands of revellers in their carefully made costumes, partying with abandon on the streets.
This is what Carnival is truly about; fun-lovers alongside cultural practitioners and admirers, enjoying a peaceful time, where music is the bond that binds everyone together.
The heat of the day was of no concern of the revellers; neither was the distance to be covered by the Carnival route.
The parade started at the Thomas A. Robinson Stadium - following a route, taking the costumed groups to Tonique Williams Highway; then towards Poincianna Drive; following on to Nassau Street; then to Western Espanade.
For miles on end all that parade observers could have seen was a sea of colour.
It was apparent that a concerted effort was put into creating the costumes, and organising the structure of the parade, in what is only the third year of the Carnival being hosted in Nassau.
Witness the colour and beauty that was on display at the Junkanoo Carnival's Road Fever Parade, via the following video:
