with your friends. Here is just a selection of what
you can experience in Tobago this August.
EMANCIPATION: Every August 1st, Tobago re-
members its African roots with colourful, historic
parades and displays to mark the liberation of To-
bago slaves in 1838. The main focus is usually at
Crown Point, with a freedom walk through the
streets which ends with a cultural extravaganza at
Pigeon Point Heritage Park. This features tradi-
tional costume, dancing, steel pan, African drum-
ming, cultural artifacts and authentic African
Trinidad and Tobago became the first country in
the world to declare a national holiday to com-
memorate the abolition of slavery.
EID-UL-FITR: Popularly known as Eid, this Mus-
lim festival celebrates the end of Ramadan, the
holy month of fasting. For Muslims, Eid is a joyful
celebration of the achievement of enhanced piety.
It is a day of forgiveness, moral victory and peace,
of congregation, fellowship, brotherhood and unity.
Families attend special prayers which are held in
mosques or in large open areas followed by a
khutba (public preaching). Then it is time for fes-
tivities and merriment, with many Muslims open-
ing their doors to the whole community, renewing
friendship and family ties. Houses are decorated
and guests are provided with a delicious range of
food, the most common of which is meethi sawine,
a traditional sweet made with vermicelli. This year
Eid is held on August 9th -- the perfect time to ex-
perience the warm hospitality of Tobago.
THE GREAT DRINKS FESTIVAL: Sample the
best of Tobago's drink at the Great Drinks Festival
happening on August 23rd at Scarborough Es-
planade. This is the third year the festival has been
held and features exclusive tropical drinks that are
indigenous to the island. Many are made using
blends of local fruits, ground provisions and veg-
etables, as core ingredients in punches, juices and
virgin or alcoholic drinks.
The Esplanade facility in downtown Scarbor-
ough will be transformed into a drinks village and
will include mixology, punch making and punch
educational displays on
beer brewing; prizes for
the most innovative
drink and an evening con-
CARIB GREAT RACE:
Hundreds of people will
be descending on Scar-
borough on the morning
of August 24th to wit-
ness the adrenaline-fu-
eled finish to the annual
Carib Great Race. First
held in 1969, this 84-mile
speedboat race starts in
Port of Spain, Trinidad
and ends at Scarbor-
ough Esplanade, Tobago.
Its a fierce, high-octane
contest which tests the
driver's skill, speed and
concentration. Over the
years the race has grown
to become one of the
most important power
boating competitions in
the region. Although the
race is usually all over by
9am, the thrills still con-
tinue with the post-race
lime -- you'll need stam-
ina but it's not to be
A patriotic celebration
held every August 31st
to mark Trinidad and To-
from Britain in 1962. The
day starts with a parade
of the island's protective
services through the cap-
ital, Scarborough before
an extravaganza of per-
formances in the evening
which reflect Tobago's
unique culture and her-
itage. This is usually a
mix of traditional dance
and song which speak of
the island's national pride
and includes performers
from all over Tobago. The
gathered crowd is then
invited to start the
countdown to the fire-
works which fill the skies
over Scarborough with
colour. It will certainly get
you oohing and aahing.
