Most Exciting Carnival…. August Monday
Anguilla offers some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, friendly people, great food and places to stay (check out 7 Palms Villa). It is also one of the top 5 Caribbean carnival destinations. The Anguilla Summer Festival has the biggest “Caribbean Beach Party” known as August Monday that takes place the first Monday in August. August Monday officially started being celebrated in 1940 and concentrated around boatracing. Now the sport of boatracing has been merged with the cultural aspects of carnival and the Festival includes a boat-race and seafood, BBQ festivals and Carnival events that show off Anguilla’s culture and music.
This August Monday is scheduled for August 6, 2012 and starts at noon at Sandy Ground Beach. Diblo Dibala, the world’s fastest guitarist, Denise Belfon, Trinidad & Tobago’s D’Soca Unit as well as local bands will be amongst the performers. J’ouvert Morning- Sunrise Street Jam and LIME A & B class “Mac Owen and Elliott Carty” Boat Race are other events that will take place on August Monday.
