    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.

    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.

    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.
