Holiday Description

Who says that Christmas has to be spent in the cold! In December travel to the Tri-Island state of Grenada for a two night stay at the Siesta Hotel. Then travel to Carriacou via Catamaran and spend 6 nights in at the Mermaid Beach Hotel for their annual Parang Festival.

It's a lively event and once you experience Christmas in the Caribbean, you'll never view Christmas quite the same ever again!

 

Festival Description

The Carriacou Parang Festival is held each year on the weekend before Christmas Day. The main objective of organising the festival was to revive and keep alive the "house to house" serenading of string bands.

Carriacou Parang Festival is unique, when compared with the Parang Festival in the neighboring island of Trinidad and Tobago, where the parang songs are sang in Spanish and electrified instruments are used to supply music.

The festival usually climaxes with a Parang String Band Melee Competition at Belair Here you will see various village bands competing for the challenge trophy as well as cash prizes. It really is a unique experience full of Good music, humour, culture and plenty of Caribbean-style Christmas fun!
