|The newly crowned Ms.Virgin Gorda|
|The stilt walkers are known as mocko jumbies.|
|We enjoyed the steel drum band!|
|Costumed participants are called masqueraders and groups of marchers and dancers are known as troupes.|
|Each troupe or band would stop periodically to give a performance and then resume marching.|
|Many participants were wearing this shirt. We finally asked what it says and what it means.....|
"Don't Ass Me Up" means "Don't mess with me and my goals."
|After marching the length of the parade, these enthusiastic and well-trained percussion|
students from Tortola performed at the parade grounds, too.
|Total concentration from this young musician.|
