While the temperature outside drops into the bearable range, youll warm your belly with tantalizing Caribbean treats while sneaking peeks at entrants in the meticulously-judged Jerk competition. Reconnect to island culture with Moko Jumbie stilt walkers, joint-jilting contortionists, and the highly-anticipated Bandana Goes Bashment fashion show. Take a digestion break and dance near the day-long domino tournament or cruise the highly-competitive cricket match for tips on SoFlas fastest-growing sport. Just dont miss this festival, or your stomach will never speak to you again.
