June 22, 2013 marked the second annual Caribbean Carnival in Los Angeles, California. People from many Caribbean Islands and countries of the Americas dressed up in very festive costumes and body decor. The trucks carrying the humongous speakers were all gassed up and ready to go, leading the soca parade down Hollywood Blvd. What a site to see! Before the parade began, I had the opportunity to paint many
children and adults in fierce and fabulous designs. After all, a carnival is not a carnival without faces to match the attire.
I enjoyed myself although the heat was on & my feet burned from too much soca jammin’ during the 2.5 mile fete. I’m looking forward to next year’s new costumes, new music and new face painting designs.
