Junkanoo at Green Turtle Cay

Junkanoo is a Bahamas street parade with dancing, music, and costumes held on Boxing Day and New Years Day. Green Turtle has Junkanoo on New Year’s Day and we made a point of staying for it. The normally quiet streets of the settlement of New Plymouth were filled with vendors and spectators. In typical Bahamian style, the parade started about an hour late giving everyone a chance to eat, drink, and enjoy each other’s company.
