    Sounds good. I hope it lasts and will be on next season.

    Where is it being put on? At the stadium?

    Is this similar to the Bon Bini festival held on Tuesday's in Oranjastad? We were thinking of going to the Bon Bini festival in July when we make our 3rd visit to the isand. Is it worth the trip?

    the Carubbean festival may be more like a "little bit of CARNIVAL".
    if you have a rental car it will be worth the trip to San Nic.
