Carnival King and Queen

At all the famous Carnivals around the world it’s all about the costumes. In Trinidad and Jamaica, in Rio and at Mardi Gras in New Orleans, crazily colourful costumes are a big part of the fun of Carnival.

Everybody dresses up in wild and wacky outfits featuring feathers and boas and big head dresses, creating a really colourful spectacle. We want Dr. Bek’s Carnival to be the same. One day we want our little country Carnival to feature its very own parade, complete with floats!
