Cayman Carnival Junior Batabano is a family-friendly festival for the islands’ youth. Introduced in 2002, this colourful cultural showcase marks its anniversary this year! Junior Carnival has grown from a small program that preceded the adult parade to its very own one-day event.

2pm - Family Fun Day begins at the Old Government Administrative Building (Glass House) with face painting, mask decorating, snow cones and many family fun activities.

4pm - The children will parade from the Old Government Administrative Building (Glass House) into George Town in a mass of colour, music and creativity. They will return to  the stage at the old Tower Building where the junior masqueraders cross the stage and perform choreographed dances to the delight of judges, friends, and family as they compete for coveted awards, 

7pm - Glow Teen Jam 

The goal of Junior Carnival Batabano is to create a safe, fun and creative environment for youth to play mas (masquerade) and to teach the art of costume making for generations to come
