Curacao Carnival

Carnival in Curacao is a bucket list event.  What started off a way to celebrate Lent is now an amazing festival that in various ways pays homage to its humble beginnings.

Leading the parade is the Carnival Queen, bestowing parade-goers with fertility and peace in the spirit of Mother Earth. Equally beloved are the Prince and Pancho, the embodiment of Carnival’s rambunctious spirit. Finally, Carnival-goers await the season’s “villain,” the Carnival King or King Momo, a straw-filled figure that symbolizes infertility, sins, and bad luck.

The music of Curacao is beautiful and infectious.  After Carnival, you want to hear more and more Tumba music!!
