CAYMAS – SHOPPING FOR FEATHERS
Shopping for Feathers
During the Hero’s Day Holiday in Grand Cayman (May 17th – 20th 2019) the streets come alive with feathers, costumes, Soca music and people having more fun than you could ever imagine!
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
CayMas is made up of a collection of entities called “Bands” each band launch their costumes during the months of January and February and they are available to view online. When you buy a costume you are also purchasing entry to the experience of CayMas Carnival which includes:
- A swag bag full of goodies
- All-inclusive drinks package for the day of the parade
- A cup to fill with said drinks
- Your pass to be “on di road”
Costume packages start anywhere from $200 and can reach as high as $800 for more elaborate designs. Costumes and swag bags are usually collected in the days leading up to carnival from various locations. Some bands even offer travel packages including flights and accommodation with your costume and weekend passes to all events.
One of our favourite bands are Iconz who offer a premium experience and gorgeous costume options, not to mention they are sponsored by and offer special deals with De Sunglass Man, Cayman’s only duty free sunglass retailer, because finding your shade is essential on the road!
