J’ouvert Morning, Carnival, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad J’ouvert is a large street party during Carnival in Trinidad. It begins at 4 a.m. and lasts until noon on Carnival Monday and it heralds the beginning of Carnival. Calypso, Soca and Steel Drum bands march in the streets of Port-of Prince and people follow them covered in mud, paint, oil and chocolate! Carnival began in Trinidad when the indentured laborers and slaves saw the French celebrating in costume and mimicked them while combining their own culture.
