Grenada’s Carnival also called Spicemas is a 2-day celebration proceeded by a week-long itinerary of parties and fun. The two-day event happens on the second Monday in August every year and the celebrations are kicked off at 4am in an event called Jouvert. Grenada’s Jouvert is well known for their Jab Jab where the locals dress themselves in black paint or oil and party in the street. There is also a Monday night mass event which is like watching a spectacular light show and then followed by Pretty mass where everyone dresses up in amazing feathered and vibrant coloured costumes. It is truly an amazing cultural event to experience while in Grenada.
