Carnival Chaser Highlight: @Tr1n1d0n x Global Carnivalist

Carnival Chaser (n): An individual that goes on mostly carnival-based vacations, and plans trip after trip based on when the next carnival is.

A newly coined term, carnival chasers have been hitting carnival after carnival for years but this trend is now becoming the norm. No longer are we looking forward to random dream destination trips in Mexico, but rather, trips are booked on the need to play mas. Promoters too have fed the craze by hosting their events at more than one carnival throught out the year. Carnival is addictive. And so I present to you, the “Carnival Chaser” Highlight series. The next carnival chaser we get to talk to is @Tr1n1d0n. 

What is it about carnival that keeps you chasing ? 

@Tr1n1d0n: The resounding energy from the crowd. The omnipresence of bliss shared amongst everyone is so overwhelming onlookers couldn’t tell if you’re in the company of long time friends or complete strangers. Definitely a vibe that you cannot find at your local club on “Caribbean night” 🙄.
