Fun galore at Miami Carnival

No rain or storm could stop the Miami Broward Carnival jam last weekend.

Even though the passage of Hurricane Matthew threatened to mar the much-anticipated event, the carnival went ahead as planned.

From the looks of things, everyone had a ball but especially the revellers.

Every year, the Miami Broward Carnival brings together hundreds of people to celebrate Caribbean culture in South Florida.

This year was no different as hundreds flocked to Miami. A precursor to this annual event that gets families and children in the calypso and soca vibe is the Miami Broward Junior Carnival.

This celebration of youth and the unity of Caribbean cultures takes place one week before the adult celebrations begin.

After the juniors had their fun in the sun, it was the turn of the adults with the usual mas and J’ouvert events.

As this year marks the 50th anniversary of Independence for Barbados, there was an extra Bajan invasion for a special 50th anniversary show, which featured soca queen Alison Hinds, Leadpipe and Saddis and Edwin Yearwood.

Here are some scenes from the carnival.
