Traditional Carnival where events from Trinidad's past are
depicted. Anything from the slave era, the stationing there of the
American fleet or even a plague of bats. These men are firemen (stokers)
and they dance with a rolling 'drunken sailor ' motion. The costumes are
supposed to be made by the participants and are many hours of intricate
The Modern Carnival with a lot less in the way of costume
and a lot more in the way of very loud music!
