Little Cayman’s Mardi Gras

With roughly 100 people living on Little Cayman, it’s not a stretch to say that every one of them celebrated in the streets for last Saturday’s Mardi Gras Parade and Party.

Decorated floats lined up around 4pm, ready to go but… Who are we kidding? Little Cayman time meant that floats were ready at around 5pm.

The castle float, the recycle float, the Central Caribbean Marine Institute and Dartmouth students’ stingray float, Pirate Point’s Go Green float, the solar-powered bicycle float, and the Little Cayman Beach Resort float started their drive from Head O’Bay to the Hungry Iguana parking lot.

Crowds gathered and cheered the passing floats while catching party beads being thrown to and fro.

Drinks in hand, everyone seemed to enjoy the evening’s festivities.

Dinner at the Little Cayman Beach Resort followed the parade, where spirited participants feasted on a $25 homemade meal with proceeds going to the Rock Iguana Sanctuary and Reserve.
