Faces of Batabano

Each year, thousands of people come to the streets to shake their tail feathers and moneymakers. We know the 2011 Carnival will be no different, and if previous Batabanos are anything to go by, the colours, inventive costumes, colourful excitement and upbeat atmosphere will have to be seen to be believed.

In case you need a reminder of what Batabano looks like, your friendly Weekender is here to help those memories come alive – we were there in full flow last year and will be again come Saturday, 7 May. Are you ready for us?
