A Regular Thursday Night in Aruba

Delicious Aruban food, handicrafts, drinks, a center stage of activities, and a mini Mardi Gras of dancing, customs and music came together tonight to create an explosion of fun. The coolest part – it’s a regular Thursday night in Aruba at the Carubbian Festival.

The Carubbian Festival takes place in San Nicolas every Thursday night in Aruba from 6:00 pm – 10 pm, showcasing the multicultural charms of Aruba. Closed to traffic, the main street becomes a paved stage for dancers, including me, and live, interactive entertainment for the whole family.

I put on my dancing shoes and strutted my stuff down the street with about one hundred others including locals and tourists. We followed a parade of costumed dancers, trumpet players, and drummers. I love any opportunity to dance in the street and I’m younger and more alive when I’m surrounded by others who feel the same.

People wait a whole year to celebrate Mardi Gras but it happens every Thursday night in Aruba. How amazing is a country that celebrates every Thursday? Imagine what it would be like if it happened everywhere?

After a night of dancing and spectacular food, I need some rest. Tomorrow I’m going on an ATV adventure and then heading to the Radisson Aruba Resort for a Signature Aloe treatment. Which would you prefer? Is it adventure or relaxation for you?
