CARNIVAL PARADE

DOZENS OF CARNIVAL PARADE TROUPES TO CHOOSE FROM

Hands down, the best way to enjoy a Carnival Parade is to join a parade troupe. The party starts around 10 am in the morning and doesn't end until late afternoon. Dozens of carnival troupe participants jam to the music of local bands and DJ's while sipping on endless adult beverages from their very own portable troupe bar. Each troupe has different themes and costume designs to fit every desire. Typically, troupes will begin to release their designs around 5-6 months before the parade.

Costume design

Do you want to bare it all or nothing at all? Feathers your thing? Pick a troupe with a costume design you can share on social media for years to come.

#SquadGoals

Do you prefer the younger, rowdy crowd or do you prefer an older, experienced crowd for your parade experience?

Entertainment

Be sure to regularly check the social media pages of each troupe to learn who their entertainment will be. Unless you're the type to play mas to whoever comes on, it's important to know how will be providing the music for your troupe.

Organization

Does the troupe regularly keep their members updated on costumes pick-up and do they provide costume fittings and alterations before parade day?
