Red Rat was a surprise performer at the promotion that featured dance competitions and steel pan lessons. One lucky person also won two tickets to Jamaica courtesy of Caribbean Airlines.

From the music to the costumes, to the energy, Carnival in Kingston is just a flight away. We want our customers to know when they are thinking about an airline, Caribbean Airlines is the best choice, as the experience of the islands begin the moment you board, with daily flights from Ft Lauderdale to Kingston and Montego Bay and seamless connections throughout the Caribbean region.”

Caribbean Airlines has been the official airline sponsor of Bacchanal Jamaica for the past four years, and looks forward to 2017 carnival celebrations in Jamaica, which runs from April 15 — 23rd and culminates in the colourful Road March parade on April 23rd.
