Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago is by far the highlight of the island's holiday calendar, and that goes for kids as well as adults. Just like mom and dad, the children of Trinidad & Tobago spend months (and vast sums of money) preparing for Carnival and readying themselves for the most elaborate costume parade you're ever likely to witness. Carnival Monday and Tuesday have a wild, adults-only reputation, but the Chidren's Carnival -- held the Friday before Ash Wednesday -- is a wholesome, family friendly affair.
