Some events are so full of kick-up-your-heels fun they’re worth celebrating more than once a year. Case in point? Junkanoo. Traditionally taking place over around the Christmas holiday season, this spirited celebration does a summertime encore during the month of July, hitting a variety of locations including nearby Taino Beach. Blending art, culture and music, local bands join colorfully costumed Junkanoo groups (and lots of enthusiastic guests of Grand Bahama Island resorts) in boisterous parades through the streets. When you hear the rhythmic sounds of goatskin drums, cowbells, bugles and whistles, it’s time to jump in and join the Junkanoo.
