Ex-patriots of the Bahamas have created this fun event along with locals, joining together in celebration by setting up carnivals, costume competitions and traditional street dances. For the parade, residents create elaborate floats and a variety of street side kitchens offer up their native cuisine to the grateful appreciation of the crowds.
