Carnival comes to Broward to celebrate Caribbean culture

If the weather is hot, then make the music hotter! That means it’s Junior Carnival time with the sounds and sights of the Caribbean taking center stage, with soca, samba, calypso and more. The Miami Broward Jr. Carnival, presented by TD Bank, is set for Saturday, October 1, 2022, at Central Broward Regional Park, 3700 NW 11th Place, Lauderhill, 1 p.m. – 10 p.m. 

There will be a parade, costumed dancers strutting their stuff and steel-pan bands battling to be the best among the competitors. Event features more than 10 junior masquerade bands who will compete for prizes and bragging rights. The day will be filled with music, culture, colors, and food of the Caribbean.

This enriching cultural event is not only a platform for showcasing Caribbean culture and an excellent opportunity for youth to participate; but it’s also a great avenue for developing artistry, according to organizers. Festivities include many youth-inspired activities. Plus, the Kid’s Zone will have face painting, a photo booth and games.
