Caribbean Carnival's principal components are calypso, steelpan and playing mas (masquerade). In the historic capital City of Port-of-Spain,
Trinidad, these elements are harmoniously structured to form a five day ritual pageant beginning with the King & Queen Contest (Friday), Panorama
(Saturday), Dimanche Gras (Sunday), J'Ouvert (Monday) and the Parade of the Bands (Tuesday). These main events and countless others build to an
unforgettable epiphany of beauty and stunning display of the irrepressible human spirit before concluding and allowing the quiet first day of Lent and
reflection known as Ash Wednesday to be admitted to consciousness.
