J’ouvert (French pronunciation: [ʒuvɛʁ]) is a large street party during Carnival in the eastern Caribbean region. J’ouvert is a contraction of the French jour ouvert, or dawn/day break.
J’ouvert is celebrated on many islands but Trinidad and Tobago it’s an amazing spectacle. Streets filled with revelers covered in bright paint colours dancing to soca music. Trinidad’s carnival is known as the “greatest show on earth”.
