Carnivale In Aruba - A Feast For The Senses!
We've just returned from beautiful Aruba where we've witnessed the festive celebration known as Carnivale -- a multi-day feast of music, dance and dazzling costumes leading up to the eve of Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent.
In this largely-Catholic, beautiful island nation Carnivale is a time of high spirits and daily and nightly celebration that leads to the crowing of a Queen of Carnivale. All ages and races participate in Aruba Carnivale in a country that blends many cultures and traditions.
Caribbean-style Carnivale is a not-to-be-missed event and we enjoyed it thoroughly!
