PART 2 SENIOR JUNKANOO
last update, the celebration of Senior Junkanoo was underway and UPDATE #09
contained the first half of the photographic presentation.
SATURDAY MARSH HARBOUR,
JUNKANOO PART 2 of 2
The large quantity of
interesting photographs prompted me to arrange them in two separate Update
issues. We now continue with the
“Senior Junkanoo” event held in Marsh Harbour, Abacos, Bahamas.
In most instances, the
pictures speak for themselves and the photographed actions seem to actually
“speak louder than words…”
The underlying theme
for this group is a tribute to the peoples of the 7 continents…
instruments connected in parallel using common PVC plumbing parts…
This is Howard. He is our very friendly and very capable Assistant Dockmaster
at Boat Harbour Marina.
Loud whistles lend
nicely to the musical fervor…
Can you find the
participant’s face and eyes amongst all the plumage?
When Judy and I left
the celebration, it was just at midnight. Each
of the fabulous groups had completed their first “Rush”. Some participants have told us that the festival continued
until 6am. A successive set of
“Rushes” brought another round of Junkanoo excitement to those locals that
remained. When we left, most all of
the foreign visitors had been gone for a long time. We felt that we had seen the best of the best.
We unchained our bicycles from the secure fence and rode them back to the
marina. It had been a truly magical
night of experiencing this unique Bahamian cultural extravaganza.
We are enriched beyond our imaginations.
We look forward to next year’s event being even more colorful and
We hope you have
enjoyed all of the photographs and that you have learned a bit about the
