    Reminder...Big Weekend Carnival

    If you are not participating and/or watching the activities this weekend.....
    you need to be aware of TRAFFIC and congestion downtown and in SAN NIC.

    25 February Carnival in San Nicolas
    This parade is one of the two biggest parades during the carnival season in Aruba.
    On this day you will see all carnival groups doing their best to show off there costumes, road pieces and dance moves.


    • Time: 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM
    • Route: Joe Laveist Sport Park, Pastoor Hendrikstraat – Caya Dick Cooper – Caya Captain H. Rodger – Lagoweg – Bernhardstraat – Dr. Schaepmanstraat – Pastoor Hendrikstraat – ends at Joe Laveist Sport Park


    26 February – Aruba’s Grand Parade
    This is the parade that you can’t miss out on. It’s going to be the biggest carnival parade in the Aruba carnival schedule 2017.
    This event boasts the best tunes, costumes and the best carnival vibes.
    If you could only go to one event during Aruba’s carnival season – it’s this one!


    • Time: 11:00 PM – 7:00 PM
    • Route: Starts at roundabout Wendy’s – L. G. Smith Blvd. – Vondellaan – ends at Banco di Caribe


    26 February Burning Of King Momo
    It is our culture and way of life to say good bye to yet another carnival season by burning the one and only King Momo.


    • Time: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM
    • Venue: Harbour Arena, Oranjestad


    27 February Carnival Monday
    After more than a month of carnival your body needs at-least a full day to rest. This is the one day locals get to rest and restore the energy lost during the dancing, mingling with friends and family in Aruba’s hot sunny weather.

    I really like how folks on Aruba get a day to recuperate after a whole weekend of Carnival. Pretty good idea if you ask me.
