Tallahassee will experience a dose of island flavor this weekend with the Caribbean Carnival, an event that features culture, music, food, entertainment, and more. The three day event begins this Friday.

The event is taking place with the backing of multiple supporters, including the Council on Culture & Arts.

The Tallahassee Caribbean Carnival will kick off the festivities this Friday with the opening of the Entertainment / Vendor Village at 2810 Sharer Road. It will feature live music and vendors throughout the evening.

Carnival activities continue in true island form with an ouvert party that will go on throughout night.

The second day begins with the all-white breakfast party Saturday. That will be followed by the continuous festivities in the entertainment village. An evening parade featuring troupes in traditional island costumes will highlight the evening.

Last-lap, as the conclusions of Caribbean carnivals are known, will be an all-day party on Sunday.
