Carnival/Spicemas in Grenada's insider take:

Grenada's August Carnival delivers the same colorful costumes, elaborate floats, and musical parades that mark similar celebrations from Bavaria to Brazil. Packed with Grenadian émigrés, this ten-day marathon of steel-pan performances, dance parties, and island-wide pageants culminates in the all-night Parade of the Bands. Wallflowers should know that audience participation is nearly mandatory. This is the only "peak" period during the summer; travelers looking to visit during Carnival should book early (especially airplane tickets).
