The West Indian Festival Carnival was the largest most colorful and vibrant ethnic cultural festival I had ever experienced in my life Carnival is what the West Indians call this outrageous event Carnival is only one aspect of the Caribbean Culture Every year this event takes place on Blue Hill Ave in Dorchester Boston All the streets surrounding Blue Hill Ave are closed for this annual special event It was a hot summer day on August 28th 1999 My best friend Jessica and I had been anxiously waiting for this event to arrive As we approached the scenery of a huge crowd I felt a vibrating feeling from my stomach going all the way out of my mouth into a huge giggling outburst It was a feeling of joy and excitement I could hear the loud Soca Calypso and reggae music piercing through my ears playing out of the back of these huge shiny silver trucks All the men and women were wearing colorful glamorous and exotic costumes My favorite costume that I saw was an all white feather costume with diamond studs on the crown and a white feather skirt with diamond studs all around it The big silver trucks had large loud speakers in the back and some island girls dancing in the back doing a special dance called whinning were they move their waist lines in a circle motion I was wearing my red halter-top black Capri pants and white tennis shoes The colors of my clothing represented the color of Trinidad which is my mother comes from As Jessica and I walked among the huge crowd squeezing ourselves through the crowd I could smell some spicy dishes of curry chicken jerk chicken rice and beans as well as a chicken rhotti which is made out of a soft fluffy pita bread stuffed with curry chicken and boiled potatoes Waiving my tiny Trinidad flag in the air
