Carnival, Trinidad & Tobago

I receive the vast majority of my postcards through Postcrossing, but I have also been doing some swaps through Facebook recently thanks to Heather's great group there. :) This is one of those cards, received from Nalini in Trinidad & Tobago. Thank you so much!!

The Trinidad and Tobago Carnival is an annual event held on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, and is well known for participant's colorful costumes and exuberant celebrations. Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago is the most significant event on the islands' cultural and tourism calendar, with numerous cultural events running in the lead up to the street parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.
