The Friday night Jump-up in Gros Islet

Amazing food stalls at Grost Islet Jump Up

STREET PARTY - Every Friday night there is a street party in the nearby village of Gros Islet, about 10 mins away from Villa Valerie. It begins with a lively street parade, with whirling dancers, energetic stilt dancers and wild costumes.  

MUSIC and FOOD - The music is infectious - a joyous mixture of Caribbean and Creole rhythms.  The street stalls sell a wide variety of delicious foods, including fresh locally caught fish, and grilled jerk chicken. 

RUM PUNCH - There is plenty of sweet stuff too and much imbibing of alcohol - with chilled beers and the famous rum punch on sale along with a dizzying variety of wicked cocktails.  Eat, drink and strut your stuff till late, every Friday at Gros Islet!  Then take a taxi home :)  only 10 mins home to Villa Valerie.
