Bahamas Junkanoo Festival Parade 4 copyright M. Timothy O'Keefe -


The national festival called Junkanoo is a kaleidoscope of color and sound. Cowbells, goat skin drums, whistles and an array of brass instruments create the riotous musical sound. The brilliantly colored costumes attract most of the attention.

It wasn't until the 1960s that women participated in Junkanoo. Better late than never!

What a photogenic addition.
