39th Caribbean Carnival Parade & Festival
August 25th, 2012
Franklin Park

Originating in Trinidad, the Caribbean carnival is a spirited showcase of culture, folklore, and tradition that depicts a time when African slaves escaped the trauma of bondage by donning homemade costumes, beating oil drums, and dancing their pain away. In cities across the country, Caribbean carnivals have been growing over the past 40 years, with more elaborate and outrageous costumes, often rivaling those in Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival, organizers like to say.

When you visit Boston, choose Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers - A Boston Hotel located in the heart of Boston's Back Bay.
