Junkanoo is a traditional style of dance and attire that brings the cultural heritage of the Bahamas to life! Its defined as a masquerade held at Christmas time, consisting of a street procession of characters in traditional costumes and dancing to drums, bells, and whistles. The artistry and style of the music and beat dates back to when the first African Bahamians arrived on Harbour Island in the Bahamas.
These performers can really bring a party to life! With dance moves to impress, these guys really know how to move at 10 feet tall! They can balance better than a Bahamian flamingo, and have the colored costumes to match. If you want amazing Bahamas pictures to add to your memories, Junkanoo dancers are the perfect addition to add to your collection.
If you want to have some real fun and experience a Bahamas Harbour Island pink sand beach party unlike anything you’ve ever seen before; visit Eleuthera and Harbour Island in the Bahamas during one of the local Junkanoo festivals. Once you hear the music, you’ll dance the night away!
