St John Carnival Festival

While each year has a different theme and somewhat different schedule, Carnival's month long activities always culminate on the 4th of July with a parade and evening fireworks.  There are activities for all including the very young and very senior. Music is always a constant throughout the month.  The mocko jumbie, a shape-changing ghost-like figure, whose origins are traced to West Africa is ever present during Carnival season. The lore is that jumbies traditionally appear in the dark  of night and are known for terrifying those who have misbehaved. At carnival, the jumbie customarily appears on stilts dressed in elaborate pants and jacket made of colorful silks and satins and is one of the most popular part of Carnival.
