European Union United Kingdom Cayman IslandsCayman Carnival Keeps on Growing

Cayman Batabano Carnival 2006

 Press Release     

Monday, 13 March, 2006

With just less than two months until the start of Cayman Carnival Batabano 2006, organisers are excited to announce this year’s event line-up that features some exciting changes from previous years.

Having started life as a single-day carnival nineteen years ago, Cayman Carnival Batabano has grown to encompass a full spectrum of events taking place over three weekends.

Fans of the street parades, an essential part of carnival, will be thrilled that there will be two separate street parades this year, taking place over two consecutive weekends. The Junior Carnival featuring school and youth groups will take place on Saturday 6 May, with the adult street parade to take place on Saturday 13 May.

"We are very excited to see carnival developing and growing – and invite all residents to come and enjoy the festivities," commented Donna Myrie, Chair of the Cayman Carnival Batabano Committee.

"We are delighted that the Junior Carnival will have its own parade this year. The full Committee will be on hand to ensure that the young people have a safe and enjoyable environment to take part in this important Caribbean tradition and hope this will encourage more schools and youth groups to participate."

The proposed line-up of events is as follows:

  • Saturday 29 April – International Song Competition at the Mango Tree
  • Saturday 6 May – Junior Carnival in George Town
  • Thursday 11 May – Masquerade Fete at Pedro St. James
  • Friday 12 May - Friday Night Fete
  • Saturday 13 May – Adult Street Parade from West Bay Road to George Town
  • Sunday 14 May – Whine Down Beach Fete

Further exciting events are expected to be added to the carnival week schedule.

More details, including photo galleries and previews of this year's costumes are available on the newly re-designed Cayman Carnival Batabano website –
