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



#5...The fetes (Trini parties)

So you think you’ve partied right?  If you’re “grown folk” like we are, then you think you’ve partied, been there, done that and can’t possibly experience partying on another level.  Well, you’re wrong.  We guarantee that partying or “fetein’” as it’s called in Trinidad is unlike anything else that you’ve experienced in your life.  Even if you’ve attended a Trini style fete in North America, it’s still not the same. 

A Trini fete is a full scale, going all out event, akin to a massive outdoor concert, complete with bright, flashing lights, massive crowd energy, no personal space, and amazing live performances.  Some even have water hoses and foam machines to give their patrons a unique partying experience.  When you attend a Trini fete, be prepared to “fete til yuh sweat” since the infectious soca music will be sure to get you moving – you’ll be jumping, waving and wining all night long. 

You’re probably thinking, “Okay, so there’s dancing?  That’s not a big deal.”  Well, the Trini fete experience doesn’t stop there.  With the all-inclusive fetes that we take our clients to, you also get the open bar experience with all you can drink alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.  Not only that, but you get to eat all you can sample from the tents serving up all types of delicious food!  What??  Yup, eat and drink the night away while dancing to soca music.  How much better can it get than that?

Yes, it can get better.  Trinis have really taken the fete experience to the next level with many different types of fetes.  One of our favorites is the breakfast party.  What’s a breakfast party?  It’s a fete that happens in the morning, of course!  The breakfast party experience included in our packages has been rated the best fete by our clients every year.  It starts with you waking up very early in the morning to get dressed to fete.  We’ll whisk you away from the hotel to the party while it’s still dark outside.  As soon as you get there, you’ll get your drinks cup.  Hold on to this since you’ll get your premium drinks in it for the rest of the morning (see #7 on our list for what you can drink in Trinidad during Carnival time). 

Then, grab yourself some breakfast.  Choose from a wide variety of favorites, both local and foreign to fill yuh belly while swaying to the sweet soca music blasting from the speakers.  The sun is rising in the sky by now.  Our clients always love partying while the sun is coming up; it’s a completely unique experience!  Our breakfast fete experience always features live performances from the hottest soca artists.  Once you have a few drinks, join the crowd to jump and wine the morning away.  Don’t party so hard that you forget to have dessert though!

Once your Trini fete experience is over, you might be like one of our clients walking around your home with a drinks cup tied around your neck lol.  You’ve been warned; Trini fetes can be highly addictive!

Our countdown continues with #4.  We’ll post it soon.

Til de next lime,
