The beautiful waters and beaches of the Turks & Caicos with the tasteful backdrop of the holidays is a beautiful backdrop for a wonderful holiday getaway.
The main season for Turks & Caicos starts off in mid-December and is definitely not a tacky decorating island. Each resort decorates a large Christmas Tree in its roundabout to keep up an understated elegance.
Some of the largest festivals in Turks & Caicos is the Maskanoo Parade. It is held on December 26th, Boxing Day, in Grace Bay. It’s a large street festival and parade. At the street festival that starts in the afternoon and goes into the evening, you will find food and drink, little light-up toys for the kids, cultural stands and music. The parade will have bright colorful costumes and bright masks. This festival celebrates the rituals brought to the islands by the African slaves back in the 1700 and 1800's. This is a safe and fun event for the whole family.
You would definitely want to take in a post-Christmas Beach Party! It’s held on December 28th at Grace Bay. Eat some local food, enjoy some kayak racing, music, and stay for a beautiful sunset.
Since most of the island is Catholic, they celebrate Old Year’s Night. They go to church on New Year’s Eve and then church bells ring to bring good luck for the new year. Then they have fireworks at midnight to ring in the New Year. Most people go to the beach to see the fireworks, it’s safe, and quite the event to see. You will be able to see the night sky light up from end to end of the island.
Turks & Caicos is a wonderful place to go for the holiday season to sit back, relax and enjoy. It’s a laid back island that many of the celebrities like to visit. A place you can get a hotel room, an all-inclusive, or even private villas, where you can hire your own private chef so you don’t have to cook that holiday meal.
