Check out Dominica Carnival where we show you the sights and sounds of Mas Dominik. We enjoyed some great Bouyon music, amazing vibes, and rare beauty of the Nature Island!!! Mas Domnik is Dominica’s Carnival, known as the ‘Real Mas’ because it holds true to Carnival traditions of the past. Held at the traditional pre-Lenten time, is a feast of calypso music, Carnival competitions, and activities all leading up to two exciting days of street jump-up. About a month prior to the festivities, Carnival is formally opened with an official Opening Parade and ceremony which highlights the celebrations to come.
Caribbean Carnival is one of the best times of the year. You enjoy Soca music while you dance the whole day around the island. But being out in the sun all day has its drawbacks and you stay hydrated and protect your skin.
