And you're never too young to start

Trinidad Carnival

The adults come out to play Monday and Tuesday

This angel escaped from Heaven.....

Trinidad Carnival

And you can never have enough feathers...

Trinidad Carnival

A little poise always goes down well

Trinidad Carnival

And some creativity

Trinidad Carnival

Many carry large costumes all day Tuesday
