Junkanoo is to Bahamians what Carnival is to Brazilians or Mardi Gras is to Nor 'leans. It's a time for fun and celebration.
Just a few days ago on July 10th, The Bahamas celebrated 38 years as a nation and the celebration is three day long weekend affair.
This morning from 2am-9am I join in the festivities as “Junkanoo In July” takes place downtown on Bay Street. For me, Junkanoo is always a nice reminder of my heritage and the fact that at heart wherever I go I will always be an island boy.
