#8 of the top 10 things to experience during Trinidad Carnival

Making new friends

Okay, so this one is a warning…if yuh “social” then Trinidad Carnival is not for you!  And we don’t mean “social” in the social media sense.  When someone from Trinidad calls you “social”, it actually means “anti-social” in the true sense!  It means that you’re not into mingling/liming and are stand offish.  This is against the grain of Trinidad Carnival since it’s the friendliest festivals in our humble opinion!  You’re constantly making new friends and acquaintances.

And this doesn’t stop at the Ultimate Trinidad Carnival Experience.  You’ll have the friendliest experience in every meaning of the word!  You’ll get to be a part of our UTC group, most of whom are just like you; new to the Trinidad Carnival experience and are ready to absorb EVERYTHING.  You’ll go to every fete, play mas, get dutty in J’ouvert and do all of it together in a safe group environment.  With all of this partying and shared experiences (jokes, laughter, wining and more), you’re sure to make new friends, which will turn into long lasting friendships.

Soca artist Farmer Nappy has a song called “Family” (listen to it here) and it’s very descriptive about what happens when you’re in Trinidad celebrating Carnival.  You’ll be dancing next to your UTC crew (of course), but you’ll also be surrounded by several other people you don’t know.  By the end of the fete, you’ll be smiling, laughing and sometimes “huggin’ up” these complete strangers like they are – you guessed it – family.  That’s the magic of Trinidad Carnival.  You’ll make many, many new friends and will have the pictures and the memories to prove it.
