Trinidad and Tobago Carnival: Part 10 – Ash Wednesday

Posted Feb 16 2010 8:30pm

After the frenzied crescendo of Carnival Tuesday all merriment and debauchery ends (or is supposed to end) with the ushering in of Ash Wednesday and the start of the Roman Catholic observance of Lent. My father tells me that ‘back in the day’ all sound stopped at midnight and no calypso would play on the radio with the end of Carnival Tuesday. Things have definitely changed since then! Although you still see many individuals with ashes on their forehead heading to workyou are also equally as likely to see the throngs of people who take the day off work and head to the nation’s beaches for a ‘cooldown’.

Here you can see some video of Trinidad’s most popular beachMaracas Bay. The little huts are concession standsthe most popular offering of which is ‘Shark n Bake’ (more on that coming soon!)


Fried Fish n Bake

For many in Trinidad Ash Wednesday is a day for relaxing (or partying) at the beach. And the defacto beach snack here in TnT is Fried Fish n Bake :)
