The 65th edition of the Aruba Carnival has been scheduled to hold from the 5th of January till the 3rd of March 2019.

The Carnival which is a two months long celebration that culminates into a Grand Parade includes weeks of colorful events such as throbbing music, electrifying jumps, torch parades, King and Queens’s elections, decorated floats, children parade, and the grand finale.

Aruba Carnival is not a one-day event; rather, it is a two months carnival that commences with the first parade on the streets of Oranjestad. Usually, the parades were filled with burning torches which have now been replaced with colorful and bright lights; those participating in the parade have these lights decorated all over their body as accessories to glow in the dark paint.

 Loud beats of traditional Aruba music, and singing fills the Island when the Carnival starts in full. The Carnival schedule is usually packed with so many weekly events such as live music, Jump-ins, Calypso, festivals, King and Queen Elections, celebrations for children, contests, parties, and parades.

Aruba Carnival ends in March with the Burning of King Momo, after which the entire Island goes on hiatus, known as Carnival Monday and also the official day of rest in Aruba.
