By Danica Reynes

 Travel / Cruise     

Five great events that you can visit in the Caribbean during December include the Bahamas International Film Festival, St. Kitts Carnival, the Cayman Jazz Festival, the Bahamas Junkanoo, and St. Lucia's Heineken Kalalu World Music Festival.

Whenever the name of Caribbean emerges in the talks of people, the wonderful palm-fringed seaside and the striking and unusual style of cooking over there come to their minds. No matter where you go - Petite Martinique's unspoiled shores or Carriacou's relaxing amenities - you are sure to feel as if you have escaped to paradise. Apart from the natural beauty that the islands have to offer, guests and tourists can also expect several exciting activities and events that are sure to complete their vacation. Listed below are some of the various events taking place in December that you may want to attend:

The Bahamas International Film Festival

The BIFF, short for the Bahamas International Film Festival, is a Caribbean version of traditional Hollywood fanfare. This fantastic event will be popular with Hollywood fans and movie buffs. The film festival runs between the 6th and 13th of December and is known all over the world for drawing Hollywood directors and superstars like Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp and many others. The BIFF program consists of special screenings, film creation and scriptwriting classes, talks, tributes and gala events.

St. Kitts Carnival

Many Caribbean Islands celebrate island culture and commemorating past events. Caribbean carnivals are proudly known for their elaborate costumes and decorations, street fiestas and colorful parades. Not only is national pride celebrated during the St. Kitts Carnival, but you will also find a variety of activities and holiday festivities. It runs from the middle of December until January 2. Allow yourself to be captivated by the sounds, sights, tastes and feeling of the parade and festivities.

The Jazz Festival on Cayman

It may not have been around for very long, but the Cayman Jazz Festival gives music buffs a delightful experience that will stick with them for quite a while. A combination of eclectic local musicians as well as well known performers such as Alicia Keys, Oleta Adams and Peabo Bryson will charm guests.

You will find that the Junkaroo is not just another ho-hum street parade. Everyday you have a different celebration marking that day. The Junior Junkanoo Parade is held on the second Thursday of December and features the impressive talents of young Bahamian Junkanoo dancers. Guests will be wowed by the dancers' talent and passion, which has been instilled in them since their youth. Another one s the Junkanoo parade, which takes place on December 26. The Boxing Day Junkanoo parade is an event that includes costumes, performers, and unique music. Launched at 2:00 a.m. on the morning following Christmas midnight mass, the Bahamian parade is thought to be the biggest non-religious celebration.

St. Lucia's Heineken Kalalu World Music Festival

If you love music, you must attend the Heineken Kalalu World Music Festival on St. Lucia island. At this music festival, you will find a great mix of music genres, styles and traditions, all on grand display in an ocean front venue. This multicultural celebration of diverse music lasts 4 nights, long enough to grab the attention of any music-lover.

The Caribbean is not only a great place to stay for a vacation but has its own set of events that every visitor will look forward to.
