Grenada Carnival 2011

Carnival in Grenada!

 Each "band" is led by a truck with the announcer, speakers and refreshments for the revelers.

 The speakers are huge, the music is deafening!

 Jim was out front taking pictures and I attempted to get some video.  Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, we shot lots of pictures and video of peoples' backsides.  So welcome to Backs and Butts 2011!

 The kids.

 The adults.

Toga! Toga! Toga!

We made it back to Grenada in time to celebrate Rikky's Birthday.
Kim and Rikky own De Big Fish Restaurant and Kim was throwing a Pig Roast/Toga Party on the beach for Rikky.

 Kim with her Birthday boy, Rikky.

Break out the old bedsheets, it's time to toga.  Here's Jim looking very Roman gladiator if gladiators drank rum punch!

Kim with the other birthday boy Mark.

There were lots of team competitions like dicus throwing and.....

 tug of war.

 A little toga line dancing.

 Basting the pig.
