Junkanoo at the Fish Fry - Nassau

Junkanoo at the Fish Fry

Fish Fry: Junkanoo!

Every Sunday night, there is a Junkanoo fesival here at the Fish Fry in the Junkanoo Pavillion. What it is is the people in big sparkly costumes with flamboyant feathers and rhinestones clad to their headdresses playing local music and practicing for the Junkanoo competition in December. It is a year-round event that happens, and you will see returning champions perform here with their man-made goatskin drums (if you're lucky enough, you may even witness a goat sacrifice for the use of the skin to make another drum). Truly a sight to see, I wouldn't miss it for the world if you had the opportunity to see it.
