To me, Trinidad Carnaval is much more special than any other bacchanal or celebration in the world. What I think makes us and our carnival unique is the religious aspect we have to it. For many, it’s like attending a religious pilgrimage.
Trinidad and Tobago was once occupied by France but our last “Boss” was England, so we only speak English, not French. Attending the Canboulay re-enactment, you really get to see the effort and research that has been undertaken to preserve the part of our culture and heritage which comes from the French. Trinidad Carnaval really is the Greatest Show on Earth.
