Junkanoo: A Time to Celebrate

The Junkanoo is a very colorful parade in the Bahamas, which usually happens on Boxing Day & New Year's. While we are in Exuma, the Junkanoo band has performed twice for us. Once in the early evening and the other time later at night.

Click on the video below to see some of their performance. Do you recognize the song they are playing? Here is a hint: my favorite singer performs it as a duet with a woman from Tennessee. Beneath the video are more photos displaying their costumes.
