WHAT IS CARNIVAL?

 

Traditional Carnival as typically celebrated in Trinidad and Brazil, is a festive season which occurs immediately before Lent, usually in February or March. Here in South Florida, Miami Carnival celebrations begin the week before Columbus Day in October. It kicks off with the Junior Carnival on the Saturday before Carnival Sunday, followed by the Steelband Panorama competition on Friday of Columbus Day weekend. The official J’Ouvert is held on Saturday morning of Columbus Day weekend and the carnival celebrations peak with the Kings, Queens and Individuals Show and Competition and the parade and concert on Carnival Sunday, the day before the 2nd Monday of October. MBOC has put together this guide to making the most of your carnival experience. This family event has many different types of entertainment, and we want to ensure you don’t miss out on anything each year.

PARADE OF THE BANDS

 

The Parade of the Bands takes place on Sunday, the day before Columbus Day, and features over 18,000 masqueraders in over 20 masquerade bands meandering around on an approved parade route.  The parade starts at noon and ends at 11 pm with a concert that follows the judging of the bands.  The pulsating music, the beauty, and pageantry are all legendary!

This year the Kings, Queens & Individuals costume competitions will take place with the Miami Carnival parade of bands. This part of the competition brings out the biggest and most elaborate costumes as the masqueraders compete for bragging rights, a trophy and huge cash prizes!

What to expect:

  • Each band has a theme which they portray on Carnival Day.  Expect to see beads and feathers in a kaleidoscope of colors, as well as huge King and Queen costumes – some of them more than 15 feet wide and 20 feet tall.
  • Be sure to bring sun block and water.
