St. Martin, which is French, owned have their Carnival celebration in the pre-Lenten period and it culminates on Ash Wednesday. St. Maarten, which is a Dutch colony, holds their Carnival after Easter, which offers visitors a second opportunity to enjoy more Carnival. Carnival in St. Martin and St. Maarten have very exotic costumes, parades and dancing as the celebration brings to these places, people from all over the world. Carnival in both countries has become better organized and the costumes have become more exotic and elaborate.
