Carnival in Cayman Islands
Grand Cayman carnival occurs in the last week of April or the first week of May and is called "Batabano". This name "Batabano" is the name of the Rotary club that created Carnival in the Cayman Islands. There are two days of fun filled excitement and gay abandonment. Batabano is a weekend when people there use their talents, imagination and devise the most colourful beautiful costumes. There are exotic foods, live steelband music and hot soca music give the revelers parading the streets every reason to jump, party and enjoy themselves. One of the sister islands Cayman Brac holds their celebration the next Saturday after Grand Cayman's and it is called "Brachanal."
