Having never been to Caribana, it would be quite presumptuous of me to give information since I have no experience in the festival, so I will direct you to Karabana’s blog “Moca Gyrl” where she has a lovely write up on Caribana. It is a must read for anyone who is thinking of going this year or even for those curious as to what Caribana is about; take the opportunity to ask her LOTS of questions as well.
Here are some other useful links for Caribana, though some of them might still be showing 2006 information it is still relevant in some cases and you can always look at photos of the mas band’s costumes:
