    Most places celebrate Carnival in late winter or early spring, but Antigua celebrates in August. This year, August 6 and 7 and set aside as a holiday for Carnival Monday and Carnival Tuesday. It's a celebration of the island's history, as Antigua Carnival remembers the emancipation of the slaves and other events.

    I would have expected to find Carnival in August, but that is really. It would be nice to go to the islands when it's so hot at home. Anyone else sick of this weather? I'd love a nice cooling ocean breeze right and a chance to celebrate Carnival. The Antigua weather is warm right now, but if you're on the beach, it's automatically better.

    If anyone knows how to throw a Carnival party, it would be the people from Rio. They know how to party! I hope the Nob Hill party is a lot of fun.
